Laughter And Music Could Lower Blood Pressure Just As Much As Cutting Salt

In the study, Japanese researchers found that people who took part in bimonthly group sessions built around music or laughter lowered their systolic blood pressure (the top number in the reading) by an average of five to six points after three months. By contrast, the average blood-pressure reading in a control group that received neither therapy didn't budge.


This makes sense to me, but if you are a smoker, make sure to stay away from anti-smokers when attempting to take part in any activities that induce smiling or laughter, as the resulting effect(s) would surely be canceled out by their vile and abhorrent nature.
