Laughter is a hearty medicine
20% of people hospitalised for a heart attack suffer from depression and new research shows that laughter may be an effective medicine against heart disease.
Researchers in the US found a direct link between mental stress and dangerous narrowing of blood vessels: when volunteers were exposed to scenes from a violent war film, blood flow decreased by 35%, but when they watched a clip from a funny film, blood flow increased by 22%.
