PONDER on THIS for Monday, September 20th, 2010 by Misa Hopkins in THE ROOT OF ALL HEALING

“Many studies have demonstrated the benefits of humor on health. Here is one that specifically shows us how humor positively effects healthy functioning of blood cells. In a research study done at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, researchers determined that: “Laughter appears to cause the tissue that forms the inner lining of blood vessels, the endothelium, to dilate or expand in order to increase blood flow.”

According to the principal investigator, Michael Miller, MD, Director of Preventative Cardiology at the University Medical Center: “The endothelium is the first line in the development of atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries, so given the results of our study, it is conceivable that laughing may be important to maintain a healthy endothelium, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.”
