Here is a sample.
Eat broccoli, cauliflower or cabbage to cut bladder cancer. You only need to eat it three times a month to make a difference. But it has to be raw.
Chewing gum at 3pm cuts cravings and reduces appetite - meaning chewers eat about 36 less calories from their afternoon snack.
Hand exercises - strengthening your hands makes veins in your arms more elastic, which then makes blood pressure fall.
Cut down on mobile chat. We all know phones aren't great for you - and researchers recently discovered a 240 per cent increase in brain tumour risk for heavy mobile users.
Pepper - Not only is it packed with antioxidants, pepper stimulates digestion, increasing the amount of nutrients you absorb from everything else you eat. Now here is a strange one.
Move your printer and your lungs will thank you. Particles from ink can lodge deep in the lungs, leading to coughs and wheezing.
Munch some pistachios. Not only are nuts heart-healthy, America's Penn State University found people eating pistachios suffer less negative health effects from stress.
Add tomato sauce to everything! Three daily dabs of ketchup cuts levels of harmful cholesterol by 13 per cent in three weeks.
