Why should I care?

Activities such as riding a motorbike or skydiving may result in an accident. But many risks we take don’t kill us straight away, for example smoking, drinking alcohol, regular junk food eating or not exercising at all.

Microlives helps you to put all these risks into a chart, which makes them comparable. This chart will show you how these affect our lives, “how much life we are losing in average”.

Each Microlife equals to 30 minutes of your expected lifespan. For example smoking 2 cigarettes or drinking 2 beers or eating a portion of red meat costs you one Microlife. If you keep all these habits it stacks up. Smoking 2 cigarettes every day for a whole life statistically shortens it by almost 2 and a half year.

Of course, this is just a statistic and everyone is unique. The aim of the app is to help you to keep up with healthy lifestyle based on most recent studies and improve the quality of your life.

  • Supporting research about
    Sitting through life
    Researchers at the University of Cambridge have been studying the link between diet and cancer. Using data from their study investigating sedentary lifestyle, they have reported about an increase of the deaths by 4% for each hour of television watched—even when taking into account other activities of the study participants.
  • Supporting research about
    Drinking coffee
    Recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found out that daily consumption of 2-3 cups of coffee lowered mortality of males by 10% and females by 13% in women, in comparison with no consumption.
  • Supporting research about
    Working out
    The meta-analysis of 22 studies and over 52,000 deaths have showed that just 20 minutes of moderate exercise a day reduce mortality by 19%. The first 20 minutes are most important; each subsequent 40 minutes reduce mortality further, but with smaller extent. Very similar picture has been shown also by the recent study of 400,000 people in Taiwan, published in The Lancet.
  • Supporting research about
    Eating red meat
    Researchers, who reported about above mentioned study on TV watching, also looked at the effects of diet. Everyday portion of red meat (85g or 3oz) increases mortality by 13%. World Health Organization just recently classified red meat as a potential human carcinogen.
  • Supporting research about
    Smoking cigarettes
    Doll and Peto (2004) analysed data of 40,000 patients of UK doctors and many of them gave up smoking during the period of the study, since 1951 until 2001. They estimated that if a 40-year-old man who had stopped smoking would have gained 9 years or 4,700,000 minutes in life-expectancy. If he had carried on smoking he would only have been expected to live another 30 years or 11,000 days, during which he would have smoked 325,000 cigarettes (assuming the higher consumption of 30 cigarettes per day in 1950s and 1960s). This resulted in estimation of 15 minutes lost per cigarette smoked, or approximately 2 cigarettes for a Microlife.
  • Supporting research about
    Drinking alcohol
    There are no denies that too much alcohol may cause serious problems. Excessive alcohol drinking may increase risk of liver disease, high blood pressure, high blood fats (triglycerides), heart failure, stroke, fetal alcohol syndrome (in pregnancy) and certain kinds of cancer. Less known is the fact that small amount of alcohol may be beneficial for heart by increasing "good cholesterol" levels and reducing risk of diabetes. Well, to get any health benefit from alcohol, we must drink responsibly. That means no more than 1-2 drinks per day at mealtime and not exceeding your calorie needs.
  • Supporting research about
    Fruit & vegies
    According to another analyse from the same study, eating the recommended 5 portions of fruit or vegetables reduces mortality of males by 34% and females by 25%. Fruit and vegetables also contain lots of fibre which helps to keep your bowels healthy. They contain plenty of vitamins and minerals, which are necessary to keep you healthy in general and also they are naturally low fat.
  • Supporting research about
    Good sleep
    Getting a good night sleep does not guarantee the immunity from disease. But we may find many studies, which have found a link between insufficient sleep and some serious health problems such as heart disease, heart attacks, diabetes and obesity. In most cases, the health risks from sleep loss only become serious after several years. However, that might not always be true, one study has simulated the effects of the disturbed sleep patterns of shift workers on 10 young healthy adults. After a mere four days, three of them have had blood glucose levels that is qualified as pre-diabetic.
