Break out in laughter! The University of California's Wellness Letter, April 2010, refers to two studies that show some of the health benefits of laughter. Japanese researchers found that laughter reduces glucose levels in people with diabetes and stimulates certain genes that control immune system activity. University of Maryland Medical Center scientists discovered that laughter has very positive effects on the arteries, blood pressure, and cardiovascular system. So, have fun with your friends and family, and laugh a lot. Your healthy life depends upon it.
