A new study has found that that mental well-being is the single most important contributor to healthy aging and longevity. But there’s another large contributor: Eating cheese. Chinese researchers conducted research involving 2.3 million people, found that while cheese is not directly responsible for longevity, a higher intake of cheese and fruit is a standout contributor to high well-being scores. And higher well-being is directly co-related with robust levels of mental health and stress resilience, resulting in a longer lifespan.

While some are still arguing about the merits of the “no-spend” challenge, a financial planner has shared her alternative. Bernadette Joy says that rather than using the traditional scrimp-and-save method to wipe out debt or build savings, her $1 rule is the way to go. Her “buy it if you’re going to get good value from it” approach is pro-spending, but only if the math works. It works like this: Simply take the cost of something, divide it by the number of times you’re likely to use it, and if it’s less than $1 per use, then buy it. If it’s more than $1 per use, walk away. As an example, say you’re thinking about buying a cheap pair of shoes. If they cost $50 and you’ll only wear them twice, your cost per use is $25. Using the $1 rule, that’s a hard no. You might also consider spending $350 on a high-quality pair of shoes. You know you’ll wear them for years, and might get 400 wears out of them. That’s less than $1 per wear, so that would be a thumbs-up purchase. Admittedly, there are exceptions to the rule — concert tickets and travel experiences among them. But, as Joy says, the $1 rule is all about stretching your hard-earned money as far as it can go.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

Denmark plans to tax farmers for the greenhouse gases emitted by their…cows, sheep and pigs. Beginning in 2030, it will become the first country in the world to do so, as it targets a major source of methane emissions, one of the most potent gases contributing to global warming. Farmers with livestock will be taxed 120 Danish kroner (US $17) per metric ton of carbon dioxide equivalent emitted from each bovine. A typical Danish cow produces 6 metric tons of CO2 equivalent per year, which means the average annual charge per cow will be a little over $100. Other animals will be taxed at a lesser rate.
