Breaking up? Here's the best way to carry out the emotionally difficult task

You might know it is the right decision for both of you, but still, breaking up is never easy.

A calm well-intended conversation can turn into an argument as emotions run high or someone can feel hurt, rejected or that the trust has been broken after sharing their life with someone.

Often people who have made peace with their decision still do not know the best way to break off the relationship and wish for some kind of blueprint in how to approach such a difficult situation.

Men, take note! Grey hair linked with risk of heart disease

In a recent study presented at EuroPrevent 2017.1, grey hair has been linked with an increased risk of heart disease in men.

"Ageing is an unavoidable coronary risk factor and is associated with dermatological signs that could signal increased risk," said Dr Irini Samuel, a cardiologist at Cairo University, Egypt.

"More research is needed on cutaneous signs of risk that would enable us to intervene earlier in the cardiovascular disease process."
