5 Amazing Health Benefits of Laughter

Good for the Heart


Researchers have discovered that blood flow is significantly affected by laughter. 20 healthy subjects were shown a stress-inducing movie, and then a funny laughter-inducing movie. The results? The stressful movie slowed blood flow by 35% and the comedy increased blood flow by almost 22%.
