 Sweating in a sauna at least twice a week could slash the risk of potentially deadly infections like pneumonia, research shows. Men who enjoyed sauna sessions on a regular basis were almost 30 per cent less likely to develop the life-threatening illness.

And four times a week or more cut the risk even further, by almost 40 per cent.

Saunas also reduced the chances of falling ill with asthma and other chest complaints.
