The Ramifications Of A Brexit

Financial Times Writers Emily Cadman and Shawn Donnan had imagined an end scenario wherein the United Kingdom had voted for an exit from the European Union.

While Vote Leave is rejoicing, the two writers believe that Europe would assert itself in the European Economic Area. Now, it is a European country that is not in the bloc. Along with others in the same market, it avoids being bound by agriculture, fisheries, judicial and foreign affairs policies. But it must cut through with unique deals.

Which might face difficulty. The two writers iterate that Europe may deliver a ‘hard bargain’ against a “Brexited” Britain when it comes to lowering tariffs and striking deals.

Despite having exited Europe, the United Kingdom still has to deal with European countries. But without its European Union leverage as it had in the past, it would mean huge penalties to the country if it were to leave.

While many say that the UK’s economic deficit to the EU would give it enough leverage, it isn’t enough to recompense the lost profits it could have by losing about half of the UK’s exports.

Britain’s services sector would also suffer. The financial markets would also face bigger challenges upon entry. About a tenth of the UK’s services industry the financial industry makes up. The lack of access to European Union markets, and even the absence of fluid passage as it does now, would hurt the country’s GDP.

Walnuts Can Keep Old Age And Ailments Away

It would seem walnuts have those great fats that keep you healthy.

The best thing about them is it could improve your elderly health.

According to San Diego Researchers, which include the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona and Loma Linda University, the elderly including walnuts as part of their 15pc calorie intake improve their health further.

The study used about 707 older adults. The group was split in two.

Test partition A included walnuts as part of their calorie diet daily. The other half had none.

The results were tremendous.

The first group showed significant improvement of weight reduction and HDL levels or ‘good’ fat levels. However, the first group exhibited improved LDL levels with immense reduction. The second group had none.

Researcher Emilio Ross said that good fats from walnuts keep adiposity levels low while maintaining or greatly improving blood cholesterol levels to improve ageing adults.

The teams hope that further studies can shed light to their discoveries.

Earlier studies conducted by the Experimental Biology Conference indicated that walnuts helped improve other aspects of the body. Walnuts contained the nutrients that helped improve the situation of most elders’ gut and metabolism. Many who undertook the 15pc calorie diet made of walnuts also felt satiated.
