Modern people know a lot about our planet, especially now, when it is possible to travel around the world or, if this is not possible, look into any corner of the globe using the Internet. And even if geography seemed a little boring to someone at school, geography seemed a little boring to someone; in fact, it is worth it to get interested in it, especially if you get acquainted with curious facts about our planet tied to geographical coordinates.


How much gold is hidden in the bowels of the Earth, a city with one inhabitant, and other interesting facts


What might make these facts enjoyable? We answer: to some extent, disbelief - when you want to google this or that information from our list to verify its integrity personally. On the other hand, this is instead a plus - and it will be remembered better, and there will be no reason to doubt what you have read. Yes, and you can always shine in a conversation, giving the impression of an erudite person. But first, could you look at what facts we at Bemorepanda have found for you?


1. Canada has the largest number of lakes - more than 879,000 of them.

Second in size, but first in the number of lakes, Canada surpasses any other country in the number of lakes. The study found that Canada has the most lakes per square kilometer in the entire world. Canada contains 62% of the world's 1.42 million lakes that are larger than 0.1 square kilometers. —


2. You can get inside a volcanic magma chamber in Iceland

Iceland is a country of volcanoes. If you ever visit this island, be sure to visit the volcanic magma chamber open to tourists. The magma chamber of a volcano is often referred to as its heart. That's where all the "bad things" happen. The only notable exception to this is the Thrihnukagigur volcano, where the magma in the chamber appears to have disappeared. —


3. Lions Are Extinct In 26 African Countries

The kings of the jungle, lions once ruled the African continent and were even present on the European continent before being driven out. According to official figures, lions have become extinct not only in Europe, but also in 26 African countries. It is sad to imagine how much of the lion population was wiped out. — PROCEEDINGS OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES


4. There are no mosquitoes in Iceland

Who loves mosquitoes? Probably no one. Luckily for you, there are none in Iceland. Although they are widespread in other countries, they do not exist in Iceland. Due to the cold climate, mosquitoes cannot enter Iceland and lay their eggs on the ground, which prevents them from colonizing the island. —


5. There are more ancient pyramids in Sudan than in Egypt.

There are many interesting facts connected with the pyramids. The Pyramids of Giza are just some of the oldest pyramids in the world. In fact, there are more ancient pyramids in Sudan than in Egypt.


Apparently, there are 138 pyramids in Egypt, and 200-255 pyramids in Sudan. Interestingly, the pyramids in the latter were not built by the ancient Egyptians, who may have moved further south. —


6. There are more caves in Kentucky than anywhere else on earth.

While Kentucky today may be known as the birthplace of Kentucky whiskey, it also hosts more caves than any other place on Earth.

So grab your gear, get your tickets, and set out to explore (with a guide, of course) just how deep this state stretches. —


7. Peru has floating islands in the lake

Seeing an island in the ocean is common, but what about a floating island in a lake? Well, there are several in Peru. The highest navigable lake in the world, Titicaca, has a small area on which the mobile islands of Uros are located. It is safe to assume that there is nothing like it anywhere else on the planet.


8. The largest desert in the world - Antarctica

Is Antarctica the largest desert? Something is wrong here. Sometimes the desert consists of more than just sand. Deserts can be described as arid places where it is impossible to survive for long periods of time. According to this description, Antarctica is home to one of the largest deserts on earth. Interesting geographical facts like these only demonstrate how unique Antarctica is as a continent. —


9. Peru is about 2.9 times bigger than Sweden

Located on the continent of South America, you might be surprised how huge Peru is compared to a large European country like Sweden. Peru is about 1,285,216 square kilometers larger than Sweden, which is about 450,295 square kilometers. It makes you wonder how small Sweden is. —


10. There is a supervolcano in Yellowstone National Park

A simple volcano can be intimidating on its own, but a supervolcano? This is really scary and amazing. As the first natural park in the US, Yellowstone is special. Most of the park is located on top of the supervolcano.


While the last time the Yellowstone supervolcano erupted was over 640,000 years ago, one might just wonder how much power lurks beneath this park.


11. Istanbul is the only major city located on two continents

Istanbul, located on the border of the Black and Mediterranean Seas, is the largest city in Turkey, but not the capital. It is also located on two different continents - Europe and Asia. The city is united by a system of bridges, but both sides of the city are still completely different. The European side has banks and historical buildings, while the Asian side is quieter.


12. The longest flight in the world lasts 19 hours

Nobody likes to fly or drive for a long time. Because it becomes too boring to sit in one place and just wait. The longest air route in the world, from Singapore to New York, will be operated by Singapore Airlines from October. The route is about 15,322 km long, which is quite a long flight! —


13. Japan's Aomori gets over 792cm of snow every year.

Since Japan is an island nation, the weather there gets crazy from time to time. Most of the nearly 0.8 m of snow that falls in Aomori City each year falls between November and April. Due to the city's low winter temperatures, headwinds accelerate cloud formation, resulting in significant precipitation that falls as snow rather than rain. Such incredible facts only stimulate the tourism sector of this city. —


14. The deepest place on Earth is the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean

The Mariana Trench is a deep-sea trench that runs along the bottom of the western part of the North Pacific Ocean. This is the deepest depression that exists on Earth and is located mainly to the east and south of the Mariana Islands. Its depth is 11034 meters.


The Challenger Deep, a small steep-walled valley at the bottom of the main depression southwest of Guam, is where the deepest depths are found. Fun facts like these might make you want to take a dip in the ocean! —


15. The full name of Bangkok consists of 163 letters.

While the Swedish city "O" has the title of the shortest city name, Bangkok can be the title of the city with the longest name of 163 letters. Ready?


Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahintara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Nopparat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchanivet Mahasatan Amon Piman Avatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit.


Try to remember it. —


16. The coldest temperature ever recorded was -89.2 °C (-128.6 °F)

While it can be cold in Russia, how cold can it be on Earth as a whole? Vostok station in Antarctica reported the lowest air temperature ever measured on the surface of the planet on July 21, 1983 at 02:45 UT: -89.2°C (-128.56°F). Because of the high susceptibility to marine air mass intrusion, as Rossby wave activity shifts across the peninsula, surface temperatures at Vostok station fluctuate greatly in winter.


17. Hurricanes hit China more than any other country.

The fact that China's typhoon season lasts all year makes it the country most prone to hurricanes. Typhoon Rammasun was the most powerful hurricane ever recorded in China. When it hit China in 2014, its speed was 257 km/h. Since 1970, more than 127 hurricanes have hit the Chinese mainland. They caused significant damage to the developing economy of the country. —


18. 42 buildings in New York have their own zip codes

The island is home to 4 million people, so a huge amount of mail passes through Manhattan every day. The postcode system is needed to complete the enormous job of getting all the mail to where it needs to go. It is interesting to note that 42 buildings in Manhattan have unique zip codes. —


19. The most remote place on Earth - Point Nemo

When the closest person to you is an astronaut in space, then you know that you are quite far from civilization. Point Nemo is as far away as it can be. Whenever they fly over Point Nemo, astronauts on the International Space Station, which is 415.211 km away, are closest to that point. —


20. The red rock of Uluru in Australia is bigger than you think.

Stones! They are everywhere, but Australia is probably the largest. At 863 meters above sea level, Uluru/Ayers Rock rises 348 meters above the surrounding desert plain. Researcher Ernest Giles, South Africa's first deputy, is home to a complex of seasonal waterfalls known as the Tugela Falls in Royal Natal's Drakensberg National Park. It consists of five free-falling cascades, the largest of which is 411 m. The total height of the cascade is 933 m. It may be the highest waterfall on Earth.


22. The diameter of Australia is 600 km larger than that of the Moon.

The diameter of Australia is 600 km (372.82 miles) larger than the diameter of the Moon. While Australia spans over 4,000 km (2,485,485 miles) from east to west, the moon's diameter is only 3,400 km (2,112,662 miles). —


23. The Diomede Islands, located at a distance of 4 km from each other, are 20 hours away from each other

Time zones can be weird and create strange situations. The Diomede Islands are separated by only 4 km (2.4 miles), but due to the fact that the International Date Line runs through them, they are not only in different time zones, but also 20 hours apart. —


24. The Dead Sea is sinking

Shrinking seas are one of the worst side effects of global warming. The Dead Sea is one of them. According to studies, the surface of the salty sea sinks by more than 91.44 cm per year. —


25. The world's largest war memorial is a road

As the First World War came to an end, many Australians returned home and took local jobs to support themselves and their families. Some have been building roads along the coast of Australia. One of the roads, built in 1932, with a total length of 241,402 km, became a memorial dedicated to the fallen soldiers, called the "Great Ocean Road".


26. The largest sandy island in the world is in Australia.

Listed as a World Heritage Site, Fraser Island, the world's largest sand island, is almost 123 km long and 22 km wide at its widest point. The highest dunes on the island rise to a height of 244 m, while most reach only 100-200 m. -


27. Yuma, Arizona is the sunniest place in the world, averaging over 4,000 hours of sunshine.

Arizona has 91 percent of daylight hours per year, earning it the title of the sunniest city on Earth. —


28. Australia's Deadliest Animals Are Horses

While Australia is a place of strange animals that seem scary and dangerous, the most dangerous animal there is the horse. Between 2008 and 2017, 77 people were killed by horses and cows in Australia. —


29. The tallest tree in the world named Hyperion is located in Redwood National Park in California.

Sequoia sempervirens, native to California's Redwood National Park, is the tallest surviving tree. The coast sequoia known as Hyperion was found by Chris Atkins and Michael Taylor on August 25, 2006, and in order to preserve it, its exact location is being kept a closely guarded secret. —


30. Mauna Kea above Everest

Everest is called the highest mountain because of the highest peak, but it is not the highest mountain. If you measured the mountain from the bottom where it starts, the title of the highest mountain would go to Mauna Kea, which starts from the bottom of the ocean and reaches a total of 10,210 m. -


31. There are about 7,640 islands in the Philippines

Many facts about geography focus on the mountains, and few of them concern the islands. The Republic of the Philippines is an archipelago of over 7,640 islands, approximately 2,000 of which are inhabited. The second largest island of the Philippines, Mindanao, is located at the southern tip of the archipelago and can be divided into three main regions: Luzon, Visayas and the country as a whole. —


32. Jericho is considered the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world

Jericho is the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world. This territory belonged to the ancient city of Palestine, founded 9000 years before the birth of Christ and located on the Jordan River. Jericho is not only the oldest city in the world, but also the lowest due to its location at 258 m below sea level. — W. David Kingery, Pamela B. Vandiver, Tamar Noy


33. One resident lives in a city in Nebraska

Located in Nebraska, Monowi is possibly the smallest city in the United States. The only resident of Monowi, Nebraska, is 84-year-old Elsie Eyler, who pays taxes and issues a license to sell alcohol. —

Ah, the Amazon rainforest! A wonder of this world, a place where life thrives and many species of animals exist. According to current data, there are 3,100 different species of animals living in the Amazon rainforest. One can only guess what is hidden behind the trees and leaves of this magnificent place. —


36. There is a lake inside the island on the lake inside the island

Like a Russian nesting doll, there is an island with a lake inside, on which there is an island ... on which there is a lake. Perhaps one of the most surprising geographic facts is that these initial type island types are usually summed up and referred to simply as recursive islands.


37. The Russian Trans-Siberian Railway crosses 3901 bridge

The Siberian part of Russia is quite large and hosts one of the longest railroads that can be found in an industrialized country. The length of the Trans-Siberian Railway is approximately 9200 km. This railway crosses 3901 bridges until it reaches its final destination, Vladivostok. —


38. The highest recorded temperature was 56.7 °C (134 °F)

At the Greenland Ranch in Death Valley, California, USA, on July 10, 1913, a temperature of 56.7 ° C (134 ° F) was officially recorded as the highest temperature on record. The previous record was held by El Azizia, Libya, with a temperature of 58 °C (136.4 °F), but was withdrawn for various reasons. —


39. The shortest flight in the world takes 57 seconds

If you're ready for a short flight, why not take a 57 second flight? In Scotland, a flight between Westray and Papa Westray is the shortest commercial flight in the world.


40. Russia has the highest mountain in Europe - Elbrus

The Alps, ski resorts and attractive mountain villages often come to people's minds when they think of mountaineering in Europe. In fact, Europe's highest peak, Elbrus, is in the Russian Caucasus, not the French Alps. Elbrus with its two-cone volcano (5642 meters above sea level) is 832 meters higher than Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Western Europe. Despite its sheer size, most people can climb Europe's highest peak, but it takes effort and determination. —


41. Russia has the coldest inhabited place on Earth

We humans tend to live where the sun shines and the weather is nice, but the inhabitants of this place seem to have a different outlook on life. The coldest temperature ever recorded in Oymyakon, also known as the "Pole of Cold", was -71.2°C.


In the 1920s and 1930s, reindeer herders stopped in the village, which is now home to 500 people, to water the herds from the thermal spring. Ironically, due to the nearby hot spring, Oymyakon means "non-freezing water". —


42. There is no rain in the Dry Valleys

The dry valleys in Antarctica, where there has been no rain for about 2 million years, are the driest regions on Earth. Covering 4,800 square kilometers, this area has almost no water, ice or snow and no precipitation. The lack of rain in this area is caused by katabatic winds, which are mountain breezes so wet that gravity pulls them out of the valleys. —


43. 14 countries have less than 1% forests (3 have no forests)

Due to pressure from growing populations on available land, tiny countries with high population densities typically have little or no forest area. While the small states of Monaco and Nauru have 0% of their territory covered by forests, the island states of Kiribati and the Maldives have between 2% and 3% of their territories covered by forests. —


44. Pygmy elephants only exist in Borneo and Sumatra

Bornean elephants, the smallest subspecies of Asian elephants, are noticeably smaller than their relatives on the mainland. According to DNA data, these elephants diverged from their counterparts in mainland Asia and Sumatra about 300,000 years ago. They currently live on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra. —


45. You will only find narwhals in the wild in Canada, Denmark (Greenland), Norway and Russia

The narwhal has a long spiral tusk protruding from its head, which gives it the appearance of a hybrid of a whale and a unicorn. Tusks are most commonly found in males, and some may have two.


In Arctic waters off the coast of Canada, Greenland, Norway and Russia, narwhals live their entire lives. The Baffin Bay and Davis Strait region is home to most of the world's narwhals, spending up to five months hibernating under the sea ice there. —


46. There are underwater lakes and rivers

Lakes and rivers are found not only on the surface, but also below us. As salt water rises from the seabed, it dissolves the surrounding salt layer and collects in the resulting depressions. So at the bottom of the ocean, underwater lakes and rivers are formed. Unique fish live in water bodies within a few kilometers of each other


Looking at the map, you might think that Australia and New Zealand are practically neighbors, only a few thousand small steps apart. Well, the distance between these two countries is only 4163 km apart. If you were to fly from one island to another, you would have to fly over 4 hours! —


48. Mount Everest is not as close to the Moon as Mount Chimborazo

Being one of the highest mountains not only on the Asian continent, but also in the world, Everest has a height of 8,848 m, but it is not the closest mountain to the Moon. Since the Earth is not the perfect circle we all imagine, some points are much closer to the Moon than others. Since the Earth's largest bulge is just one degree south of the equator, the summit of Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador, which is located there, is the highest point above the center of the planet. With this in mind, this means that Mount Chimborazo is closer to the moon and stars than Everest's highest peak.


49. Iceland is growing at 5 centimeters a year

As one of the youngest land masses in the world, Iceland is home to some of the most active volcanoes. The island was formed by a huge volcanic fissure in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates collide. Even now, the country is expanding at about 5 cm per year as it expands at the collision points of two tectonic plates. —


50. The Sargasso Sea is the only sea in the world that does not have a land border.

The only sea in the world that is completely surrounded by sea is in the North Atlantic Ocean. Its northern, western, southern and eastern boundaries are formed by the Gulf Stream, the North Atlantic Equatorial Current and the Canary Current. Like a land coastline, these currents create a gyre that circles the Sargasso Sea in a clockwise direction. —


51. Africa spans all four hemispheres

The world can be divided into four different parts, known as hemispheres. Africa is located in such a way that it is in all four hemispheres, which makes it the only continent of the four main ones. —


52. Water covers most of the planet, but most of it cannot be used by humans.

Although there is water in the oceans, seas, lakes and rivers, people cannot use all of it. We can only use fresh water. Fresh water makes up a very small fraction of the total amount of water on the globe. Although water covers nearly 70% of the earth's surface, only 2.5% of it is fresh water.


Only 1% of our fresh water is readily available, and most of it is in glaciers and snowfields. In fact, only 0.007% of the world's water is used to hydrate and nourish 8 billion people. —


53. It's snowing in Hawaii

On the tropical island of Hawaii, snow falls from time to time, but only on the tops of the highest peaks of the Big Island, and Maui is covered with it. The snowstorms that return every winter usually only cover mountains above 11,000 feet (3.35 km), so snow can only be seen on Mauna Kea (13,803 feet - 4.2 km) and Mauna Loa (13,680 feet). – 4.1 km). —


54. There are over 300 indigenous tribes in Brazil.

There are people in our world who prefer to live in tribes. Approximately 305 tribes, or about 900,000 people, make up 0.4% of Brazil's current population. For the indigenous population, the government has recognized 690 districts, which is almost 13% of the territory of Brazil. This protected area is located almost entirely in the Amazon.


55. Mawsynram in India is the wettest place on Earth

The village of Mawsynram in northeast India is the wettest place on earth, averaging an incredible 11,871 millimeters of rainfall per year. From June to August alone, an average of 3,000 millimeters of precipitation fell. Due to the unusual shape and orography of the catchment, moisture from the Bay of Bengal is concentrated here, causing heavy rains. —


56. The Caribbean is the deepest of the seven seas.

Jack Sparrow's secrets aren't the only dark depths hidden in the Caribbean. With a maximum depth of 7,686 m below sea level, the Caribbean Sea is the deepest sea in the world and the second deepest sea in the Atlantic Ocean. It is deeper than the Arctic Ocean and is the fifth deepest body of water on earth. —


57. Colombia is home to most bird species.

In Colombia, you can find the largest number of different types of birds! Currently, 1958 species of birds live here, 80 of which are endemic, which makes up Indonesia. The province of North Sulawesi produces most of the country's coconuts. Coconuts grown in Indonesia are exported in large quantities abroad. Indonesia is also one of the largest pineapple producers in the world. —


59. Polar bears live only in Alaska, Canada, Russia, Greenland and some northern islands belonging to Norway.

The sea ice that forms over the open waters where their prey, the seals, is essential to the survival of polar bears. Because they are good swimmers, polar bears can travel long distances between shore and sea ice. Polar bears often swim between floating ice islands when the ice breaks off. Currently, polar bears can be found in Alaska, Canada, Russia, Greenland and the islands of Northern Norway. —


60. The Pacific is shrinking

The world's largest Pacific Ocean shrinks by several centimeters every year. This is due to the fact that the tectonic plates on which America is located are shifting to the west.


61. Earth has enough gold to cover itself with it.

Gold is not only shiny and valuable, but also lies deep in the earth where we cannot get it. According to modern scientific theories, there is enough gold in the Earth's core to cover the surface of the planet with a layer of pure gold 4 meters thick. —


62. Middle East imports sand from Australia

Australia and Saudi Arabia are two desert countries, but one exports sand and the other imports it. Saudi Arabia is an importer of sand from Australia due to their huge construction needs. This demand is only growing, and Australia is happy to try. —


63. Egypt is located in both Africa and Asia

Egypt is called a "transcontinental nation". It is located in both Asia and Africa. However, since most of Egypt is in Africa, most people think of Africa when talking about Egypt. Asia contains another small part of Egypt. This is the Sinai Peninsula, located in the southwest of the country. —


64. There are underwater volcanoes

The Earth's most active volcanic systems are submerged in water that is typically 2,600 m deep. It is estimated that 75% of the annual volcanic activity is produced by the global mid-ocean ridge system below the oceans.


It is estimated that lava erupted over an area of 3 cubic kilometers. The edges of the new oceanic plates are formed by magma and lava, which also provide heat and chemicals to some of the planet's most unusual and exotic organisms. — Martin Speight, Peter Henderson


65. Russia has 11.0% of the earth's land

Throughout history, Russia has been in the top 5 countries by land area and has stayed there for a long time. At present, even after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia is still the largest country in the world. With a total area of 17,098,242 square kilometers and a land area of 16,376,870 square kilometers, or 11% of the total 148,940,000 square kilometers

Planet Earth is part of the solar system, is the largest terrestrial planet, formed about 4.57 billion years ago and is the densest planet in the entire solar system. Read general information about planet Earth.

Planet Earth revolves around the sun in 365.26 days, and this period is known as one year. During all this time, the Earth rotates about its axis about 366.26 times. During gravity, the Earth interacts with other objects in space, especially the Sun and Moon, the Earth's only natural satellite.

Seasons appear on Earth because its axis of rotation is inclined relative to its orbital plane. The gravitational interaction between the Earth and the Moon stabilizes the Earth's orientation on its axis and gradually slows down its rotation.

The Earth's surface is 71% covered with water, mainly by the oceans, and the remaining 29% is made up of continents and islands that, along with other rivers and water sources, contribute to the hydrosphere.

The name of the planet Earth does not derive from Greek or Roman mythology, as is the case with the other planets that were named after gods and goddesses from Greco-Roman mythology. The word "earth" comes from the Latin word "pavimentum", which means "paved earth" or "level", "floor", "paved road", "smooth place", "pavement", "mosaic" or "weft".

Since its formation, the Earth has undergone many geological and biological processes. The Earth's atmosphere and oceans were formed by volcanic activity and expulsion. From here, water vapor condensed into oceans amplified with water and ice from asteroids, comets and protoplants.

More than 3.5 billion years ago, the Earth's magnetic field stabilized, and this prevented the solar wind from scattering the atmosphere.

Approximately 4.5 billion years old, the Earth was formed when a cloud of dust collapsed due to gravity, and like planets such as Mercury, Venus, and Mars, the planet Earth is a rocky, central core. which is surrounded by a mantle and a solid crust.

The shape is approximately oblique spheroidal and, due to the rotation, the Earth is flattened at the poles and bulging around the equator. Its diameter at the equator is 43 kilometers, larger than the pole-pole diameter.

The main deviations from the Earth's surface are: Mount Everest, 8,850 meters above sea level and the Marianas Pit, 10,924 meters below sea level.

The Earth's mass consists mainly of iron (32.1%), oxygen (30.1%), silicon (15.1%), magnesium (13.9%), sulfur (2.9%), nickel (1 , 8%), calcium 1.5%), aluminum (1.4%), the remaining 1.2% consisting of small amounts of other elements. Due to mass segregation, it is estimated that the core consists mainly of iron (88.8%), with smaller amounts of nickel (5.8%), sulfur (4.5%) and less than 1% trace elements.

The total area of ​​the Earth is about 510 million square kilometers, of which 70.8% and 361.13 square kilometers are below sea level and covered with ocean, the remaining 29.2% and 148.94 million square kilometers, respectively it is not covered by water and consists of mountains, plains, deserts, plateaus and other landforms.

Due to the swelling of the earth at the equator, the summit of Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador (20,700 feet or 6,310 meters) is the farthest point from the center of the Earth. Thus, the mountain claims the title of being "the highest point on Earth" (although Mount Everest is still the highest point above sea level). Mt. Chimorazo is an extinct volcano and is located about a degree south of the equator.

While at sea level, the boiling point of water is 212 F, it changes if you are higher than that. How much does it change? For every 500 feet of elevation increase, the boiling point decreases by one degree. Thus, in a city 5,000 meters above sea level, the water boils at 202 F.

The deepest lake in the United States is Crater Lake in Oregon. Crater Lake is located in the collapsed crater of an ancient volcano called Mount Mazama and is 1,932 feet (589 meters) deep.

The clear water of Crater Lake has no streams to feed it and no streams as springs - it has been filled and sustained by rainfall and melting snow. Located in southern Oregon, Crater Lake is the seventh deepest lake in the world and contains 4.6 trillion gallons of water.

In 1947, the British left South Asia and divided their territory into independent countries in India and Pakistan. The Muslim regions on the east and west sides of Hindu India have become part of Pakistan.

The two separate territories were part of a single country, but were known as East and West Pakistan and were separated by more than 1,609 km. After 24 years of turmoil, East Pakistan declared independence and became Bangladesh in 1971.

Because the longitude lines converge at the North and South Poles, it is almost impossible (and very impractical) to determine which time zone you are in based on longitude.

Therefore, researchers in the Arctic and Antarctic regions of the Earth typically use the time zone associated with their research stations. For example, because almost all flights to Antarctica and the South Pole come from New Zealand, New Zealand time is the most common time zone in Antarctica.

The longest river in Russia and Europe is the Volga River, which flows entirely in Russia for 3,685 km (2,290 miles). Its source is in the Valdai Hills, near the town of Rzhev, and flows into the Caspian Sea in southern Russia.

The Volga River is navigable for much of its length and, with the addition of dams, has become important for energy and irrigation. The canals connect it to the Don River, as well as the Baltic Sea and the White Sea.

At one point, in recent decades, someone started an idea to alert people that population growth was out of control, saying that most people who have ever lived were alive today. Well, that's a gross overestimation.

Most studies place the total number of human beings who have ever lived between 60 and 120 billion. Since the world's population is currently only 7 billion, the percentage of people who have lived and are alive today is only 5% to 10%.

Worrying about your health and a prosperous old age with a minimum of pills and trips to clinics and hospitals is one of the most critical intellectual investments that can only be made to a person throughout his life. And it's never too early to start here, but in some cases, it's already too late; however, as they say, better late than never.


About nutrition, sports, aging, and more


And it's good that people in recent years are more and more often asking the right questions about a healthy lifestyle and the health problems they face, and do not want them to break them. With modern medicine, most of these difficulties are entirely solvable or at least allow you to extend life in those cases in which 30-40 years ago there would have been no chance. And do not forget about sports and a healthy lifestyle. This is the BASIS for a happy life and old age for any person!


So, we've rounded up some actionable solutions to the real problems that plague the minds of those over 50. It's time to answer some of them.


Self-care, proper nutrition, a healthy lifestyle



1. I'm in my 50s, but to be honest, I still feel young. At what age should you start taking your health seriously?


Right now would be a good start. If you didn't get tested last year, start there. Get your blood pressure, glucose, and cholesterol levels checked and get checked out.


2. I heard doctors don't worry about high cholesterol anymore. Is this true?


No. High cholesterol levels, especially LDL, or "bad" cholesterol, continue to be a marker for increased risk of heart disease. And preliminary results from a 2022 study of more than 750 older adults found a link between high cholesterol and an increased risk of dementia.


3. Do all these “healthy lifestyles” really help me live longer? My uncle ate bacon every morning and lived to be 87 years old.


It's not just about how long you live; it's about how well you live. A 2019 BMJ (British Medical Journal ) study of more than 110,000 people since the 1980s found that those who followed a healthy lifestyle, such as controlling their weight, exercising, and not smoking, lived disease-free much longer after passing the milestone of 50 years (plus 30 years or more) than people who did not adopt these habits (plus 23 years).


4. What is the best diet? Is it keto? Paleo?


Healthy Eating Rule Number One: No fancy diets, weird food plans, just common sense. A recent analysis of a 1995 study found that those who ate more fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and less red and processed meats, sugar-sweetened beverages, and sodium slowed their aging at the cellular level.


“Foods like sugar and highly processed flour can cause inflammation in your body and are usually also high in calories,” explains registered dietitian Marianne Walsh.


5. I heard that cutting calories is linked to longevity. Does this mean that I should fast?


Numerous studies have shown that long-term calorie restriction can reduce metabolic function and slow cellular aging in rats! Human trials have been limited.


A 2019 study in The Lancet found that people who reduced their calorie intake by 12 percent had lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, increased insulin sensitivity, and were less likely to have inflammation.


True, the two-year study included only 238 people, and the oldest of them was 50. In addition, calorie-restricted diets can cause muscle loss, leading to weight gain and other unhealthy consequences.


The best solution: don't starve or go on extreme diets; try to eliminate the unnecessary calories you usually consume and switch to healthier foods, especially fruits and vegetables. A good starting point is to cut back on snacking out of boredom, anxiety, or habit. Instead, warm up or go for a walk.



6. I know what I should eat, but how can I continue to eat what I like?


In most cases, you can eat whatever you want. You don't have to eat as much as you want. You should also include fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, whole grains, and fish in your diet to reduce inflammation and control calories.


7. Skipping breakfast is the new diet trend. Is it good for me?


Bad idea. Breakfast is essential for several reasons, one of the main ones being fiber intake. A 2021 Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine study found that those who eat breakfast and eat more than 25 grams of fiber daily have a 21 percent lower risk of dying from various causes than those who skip breakfast.


And a meta-analysis of studies has shown that with each new day of the week when you skip breakfast, the risk of developing diabetes increases.


8. Do I need all these prescription drugs?


One in five adults aged 40 and over takes at least five prescriptions in the US. The risk comes when you have multiple prescribers, and there's no direct connection between them, says Amy Taggart Blashchik, director of geriatrics at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy.


Keep a written list of all prescription and over-the-counter drugs and supplements you take, including frequency and dosage. Review this list with each of your primary care physicians.


9. How can I eat a healthy diet on a tight budget?


Frozen fish and vegetables are generally cheaper than fresh, come in handy portion packs (no more throwing away half-full containers of spoiled spinach), and keep for weeks.


10. I have mountains of various vitamins in my locker. Isn't that enough?


No. Research has shown again and again that pills work differently from food. Example: A 2019 study of over 30,000 adults found that healthy levels of vitamins A and K, as well as the minerals magnesium and zinc, may be associated with a lower risk of death, but only from food, not pills.


Scientists don't fully understand why, but it may have some connection to how food's nutrients interact.


11. Do you mean that vitamin pills are useless?


For a man over 50? There is a strong possibility of this, with one exception: vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency in the elderly is estimated at around 20 to 100 percent. Sunlight and food are not enough for many people to reach the recommended minimum of 600 IU daily, so ask your doctor if a vitamin D3 supplement might be good for you.


12. What about my fish oil tablets? I have read that they cannot prevent heart attacks. Truth?


Unexplained fact. A 2020 JAMA study of more than 13,000 people at high risk for heart disease (mean age: 63 years) compared groups taking a regular omega-3 formulation with a placebo and found no benefit from fish oil.


However, other studies, including a 2019 analysis of over 127,000 people, found that taking omega-3 supplements derived from fish oil reduced the risk of heart attacks and death from heart disease.


Bottom line: Eat more fish and omega-3-rich foods like nuts and seeds, but it's also okay to talk to your doctor about omega-3 supplements.



13. Is there any secret to getting quality medical care?


Find good doctors whose results you like or your friends are satisfied with, and let them work with you for as long as possible (ideally for life).


Continuity of care is associated with fewer ER calls, better treatment adherence, and longer life expectancy.


Fitness: maintaining health


14. OK - more healthy food, a good doctor, and watch your pills. What other lifestyle change can I make today that will help the most?


Come out for a walk. A sedentary lifestyle with low overall physical activity increases the risk of premature death as much as smoking, high blood pressure, and heart disease. An analysis of studies of people aged 54 to 65 showed that watching TV for more than four hours a day can increase the likelihood of blood clots in the thigh and lower leg by 35 percent.


15. All I need to exercise is a long walk.


Yes and no. Research has shown that moderate activity like walking has enormous health benefits, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week. A little over 20 minutes of brisk walking daily will help you achieve your desired result.


“Doing the same activities every day over time has its benefits, but there may be more benefits to doing the same,” said Jordan Metzl, MD, a sports medicine specialist at the New York City Hospital for Special Surgery. “Performing various activities, especially as you get older, will challenge your body, lead to better fitness and health benefits, and help you avoid injury.”


He recommends alternating weight training, swimming or cycling, and yoga.


16. I wouldn't say I like gyms, loud music, and sweaty people. What else can I do to stay mobile?


Play tennis or any other agile (but not very traumatic) sport. “Mobility is the lower body, and the entire lower body is interconnected,” Metzl says. Unlike running or cycling, tennis moves you in all directions by exercising your hips, glutes, and legs from different angles. Basketball is another option. Also, make a few multidirectional lunges (forward, side to side, and back) first thing in the morning.


17. Is there a 100% non-sweatshop way to improve your health?


Floss your teeth every day. According to the 2019 Global Burden of Disease study, untreated oral diseases led people aged 50 to 74 worldwide to live 8 million years of life “with a disability” in 2019.



18. What is a decent fitness goal for people in their 50s?


If you dream of running a marathon, that's great. But among those big goals, there's a more straightforward goal, Metzl says: “Start exercising and don't stop. Lay the foundation and keep building for the next 30 years. Then you can set more specific goals.”


19. I go in for sports but have not lost weight. It seems pointless


Weight loss occurs primarily through eating healthier foods and fewer unhealthy calories. The sports medicine specialist explains that exercise significantly reduces the risk of age-related health problems, from bone loss to heart disease and back pain.


Aging: looking after your appearance


24. What is a "healthy" sex drive for a man over 50?


If your current sex drive makes you happy, it's okay anyway, notes gynecologist-oncologist Elizabeth Poynor, MD. If it's low and upsetting, it's time to find the root cause of your low libido and fix it.


“Not everyone needs to have a lot of sex to be healthy and happy,” adds Poynor. "It's very individual."


25. I wouldn't say I like getting older. What is wrong with me?


How old do you feel? Research shows that feeling younger than your biological age is excellent and is associated with better mental and physical health, cognition, and life satisfaction.


A 10-year study of almost 3,600 people found that those who started with higher subjective age and depression experienced more health problems later. If you are depressed and “feel” older most of the time, seek professional help.


26. What can I do about the stress in my life?


Rethink your response to daily challenges. A 2020 study found that people experiencing "unbearable" stress lost almost three years of life expectancy. Always remember that stress is not a demanding boss; it is your reaction to stimuli.


You have two options: eliminate the source of stress, or learn how to respond to it more healthily.



27. I try to "stay young" in how I live and think. Is this real?


People in their 50s and 70s in many parts of the world are now “the first cohorts to grow up with better educations, better health care, and different lifestyles,” Diehl says. This has resulted in older people looking and acting much younger than people of their age in previous generations.


28. I'm thinking about a surgical "refresh," but is cosmetic surgery safe?


In the US, 2.3 million procedures of this kind were performed in 2020, and surveys show that about 90 percent of patients are satisfied with their results and, in general, cosmetic surgery is safe. A study of over 26,000 cosmetic procedures found that only about 1% of patients experienced complications within 48 hours of surgery.


29. My husband refuses to talk about his health or go to the doctor. Is he hiding something?


According to a Cleveland Clinic survey, half of the men say they don't talk about their health. “Not knowing there is a problem may be preferable to the discomfort of realizing there is,” says Harvard clinical psychologist Natalie Christine Dattilo.


Forget about feelings of guilt and requests; you will only cause resentment on the part of the man. Try to radiate a calm, supportive, and loving atmosphere. Be a good role model, and you might be able to get through to him.


30. How can I eliminate this chronic fatigue I picked up during the pandemic?


Eat nutritious food. Drink plenty of water. And get exercise—the daily movement of your body builds the physical and emotional resilience you need to get through chronic fatigue.


31. I had COVID last winter and still feel out of sorts. Is it a post-covid syndrome?


Evidence suggests that more than half of COVID-19 survivors end their illness experience with acute post-COVID syndrome. It is characterized by long-term breathing problems, brain fog, headaches, and joint pain. Studies show that the virus can persist in the heart, brain, and cerebrospinal fluid for months after clearing the initial infection. If you have persistent health problems after COVID, see your doctor.


32. I don't feel as cheerful at work as I used to. What can I do?


Consider different ways to revitalize your career. This could mean a move to a new division, a promotion, or a move to another field altogether. Upgrading your skillset can also organically increase your energy levels and engagement at work.



33. How can I avoid becoming a nightmare for my children?


"Tell them, 'My passwords are here, here's my financial situation, these are the medications I'm taking,'" explains certified care manager Amy Cameron O'Rourke. Make these questions part of your annual family gathering because what you want at 55 may change when you turn 75.”


34. My loved one and I broke up because our values ​​don't match. How to do a reboot?


According to a survey conducted by Cornell University sociologist Carl Palmer, about 27 percent of American adults are divorced. Regardless of what caused your breakup, seek to rekindle the relationship by reaching out your hand and saying, "My relationship with you is more important than the topic we disagreed about." Overcoming a family feud will do more than resurrect your relationship—it can make you healthier.


Health: disease resistance


35. I have hypertension. Are blood pressure cuffs worth the money?


Yes. A 10-year study in 2021 involving 11,502 people aged 45 to 60 found that those with the lowest cumulative systolic BP scores lived 4.1 years longer, and those with heart diseases were pushed back by 5.4 years. Blood pressure measurement will remind you and show you what to do to keep it within the normal range.


36. What is the first sign of heart disease?


There are many factors, such as sudden fatigue, trouble sleeping, shortness of breath, indigestion, and chest pain, says Suzanne Steinbaum, an osteopathic cardiologist. Pay special attention if the last three symptoms occur during your activity and if they disappear during rest.


37. I like to have a glass of wine in the evening. A little wine is good for my heart.


Probably no. The American Heart Association does not recommend the consumption of alcohol in any form to improve health. Research is starting to coalesce around the idea that light to moderate drinking may not help prevent heart disease — so much so that the World Heart Federation stated in 2022 that “no level of alcohol is safe” for your heart health.


38. Is it possible to be healthy while leading an idle and relaxed lifestyle?


It all depends on the intensity of this idle lifestyle. Relaxing from time to time is possible, but the frequency of entertainment and its focus is the question. If this is due to alcohol and spending nights in clubs, you should not be surprised that health will say, sooner or later: "Hello."


39. Sometimes, I smoke a cigarette. Does it matter?


Yes. A review of 141 studies found that people who smoke just one cigarette a day have half the risk of cardiovascular disease as people who smoke 20 cigarettes.


40. Does "pre-diabetes" mean that you will get diabetes?


There are no guarantees, but there is plenty of evidence that lifestyle changes now (with prediabetes) can dramatically change the direction your health is headed. For example, preliminary results from a 2022 study of more than 8,700 people showed a strong association between cardiorespiratory fitness and improved health in the early symptoms of type 2 diabetes: the higher the fitness level, the lower the incidence of type 2 diabetes.



41. What is an easy and low-tech way to measure your health?


Waist-to-height ratio. Aim for a waist circumference less than half of your height.


42. How worried should I be about cancer in my 50s?


The median age at which cancer is diagnosed is 66, meaning that half of all cases occur in younger people. During these years, it is essential to pay attention to cervical cancer (average age of diagnosis: 50 years) and breast cancer (average age of diagnosis: 63 years).


43. So, should I get screened regularly for cancer in my family?


The US Preventive Services Task Force recommends screening for several types of cancer, including breast, cervical, colorectal, and lung cancers. There is evidence that screening tests can detect these cancers early and affect treatment and survival.


44. What about prostate cancer? Should I have a PSA (prostate-specific antigen) test?


Yes. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, other than skin cancer, and affects men under the age of 65 in 40 percent of cases. However, nearly 99 percent of prostate cancers are treatable if caught early. And don't panic if your PSA is elevated. According to the National Institutes of Health, most men with elevated PSA levels do not have cancer, and only 25% of prostate biopsies show cancer.


45. My mother completely lost her sight before she died. How to protect your eyes?


See an ophthalmologist for an eye exam every year, says Kenneth Dickerson, Ph.D. of the Flaum Eye Institute at the University of Rochester. Most eye diseases, such as macular degeneration, imperceptibly steal vision; a person does not immediately go blind. Without seeing a doctor, you won't know you have a disease until it's in its final stages.


46. ​​Speaking of feelings, what can I do about tinnitus?


Alas, there is no 100% cure for this disease. However, ask your doctor about neuromodulation, in which the device simultaneously delivers electrical stimulation to the tongue and auditory signals to both ears. A 2020 study found that this therapy reduced tinnitus symptoms over 12 weeks.


Brain power: keep the mind sharp


47. What can I do first to prevent dementia?


Go to bed by 22:00.


“The earlier you go to bed, the more NREM sleep you will have,” says Sarah Mednick, professor of cognitive science at the University of California, Irvine, and author of The Power of Consciousness.


Slow-wave sleep improves brain health by clearing toxins and other dementia-causing buildup and developing connections between brain regions to create stronger memories.


This phase also keeps the circadian clock in check and stops around 1 am, so you must go to bed early to maximize your stay.


In other words, you can't close your eyes at midnight and expect three hours of healthy memory-protecting sleep.

The majority of respondents aged 50 to 79 said they were afraid of losing their mental or physical abilities, becoming a burden on their families, and giving up their independence. As one participant wrote about Alzheimer's, "I'm scared to think that I might lose myself."


48. I try to go to bed earlier, but I have noticed that I sleep less now that I am over 50. Is this fine?


Yes, it's completely normal. At age 20, you need eight to nine hours of sleep each night. Older people need about an hour less, notes Nalaka Guneratne, MD, a sleep medicine physician and geriatrician at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine.


49. About that wine at night: it's still good for my brain.


No, it's not. A study of more than 25,000 people in the UK found that alcohol consumption hurt brain size and structure and that those who were heavy drinkers or overweight with high blood pressure were more susceptible to it. The key finding of the study: “No safe dose of alcohol for the brain has been found.”


50. What else can I do to protect my brain?


There is no miracle pill for brain health, although one of the most important things you can do is maintain a stable weight. A 2021 meta-analysis of data found that being significantly overweight increases the risk of developing dementia. Surprisingly, being underweight was also a risk factor. In addition, exercise is also essential to reduce risk.

When you are just on the path to a new relationship or at the very beginning of one, it is essential to get to know your current/potential love partner as best as possible. After all, if you are serious and want to continue, and ideally go hand in hand all your life, it is essential to get to know your heart friend as best as possible: what he loves, what he does not accept, whether his worldview suits you and even whether you are suitable in terms of intimacy ... After all, many, blinded by the initial passion, bask in the rays of their feelings, not thinking about what's next ... And then there may be a dead end ...
