1/ "Fits at Chess" might seem like a punchline, but it's a real health concern ๐Ÿง . I've been exploring research papers on the negative effects of #Chess on well-being, societies, and ecosystems, and found the first report of chess triggering #epilepsy from 1965. #NorwayChess Image 2/ These cases fall into a category of reflex #epilepsy - seizures are activated by specific, identifiable triggers. Such triggers can be external (flashing lights, hot water ๐Ÿšฟ), internal (emotions, thought ๐Ÿ’ญ), or a mix of both.

"Grey matter volume and cortical thickness were reduced in chess players compared with those of control men in the occipitotemporal junction and precunei." #Chess #chesspunks #NorwayChess Image 2/4 Chess is a silent "killer" of ๐Ÿง  cortex locally.

๐Ÿ’กWho holds the record for the thinnest ๐Ÿง  cortex among chess players in history? Will collective chess ๐Ÿง  solve this mystery despite the thinning? Retweet! ๐Ÿ”

๐Ÿ’Š Older adults make up 56% of the global cancer population, yet they're just 40% of participants in new cancer therapy trials. The underrepresentation of this key demographic in clinical trials is a major concern. #clinicaltrials #healthcare #aging Image ๐Ÿ’ŠTrials biased towards younger patients without comorbidities and multiple prescription drugs yield cleaner datasets but may not provide sufficient evidence on drug safety and efficacy for older populations. 2/3
