Laughing helps arteries and boosts blood flow (http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn7103)


Laughing appears to be almost as beneficial as a workout in boosting the health of blood vessels, a new study suggests.

"Thirty minutes of exercise three times a week and 15 minutes of hearty laughter each day should be part of a healthy lifestyle," says Michael Miller of the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, US, whose team has shown that laughter relaxes arteries and boosts blood flow.

Do you think that my health insurance then will cover the cost of going to a comedy club as a "wellness" expense? How about airfare and ticket price to go see Spamalot on Broadway?
:lol:
(see, aren't you feeling better already) :wink:

Uh oh! If you are, does that mean I've been practicing medicine without a license? :oops:
