New scientific findings prove: laughter as the expression of amusement is vital for your health!
It is a biologic fact that all living species on this planet – man being no exception – are an ecosystem dependent on natural laws. In this respect, we need to understand that our health is not a physical phenomenon only, but a hybrid of body and mind. With laughter being the ‘missing link’?

THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
Timothy Barnes from Brookings, SD, asks:
The 99 years old grandmother of my wife is really funny, taking any chance of a laughter whenever she can. Do you think, this has an impact on her ‘longevity’?
As you may have learned from my Sunday Blogs – specifically the one on the health effect of - our biologic existence and health is not at all a physical issue only but rather a hybrid of both: body and mind. Based on the fact that our biology is a complex and systemic ecosystem, dependent on natural laws.
Going back to the history of man’s biology we share, inter alia, one specific trait of mind with our genetic relatives and ancestors - great apes like chimpanzees - when expressing amusement by laughter. Bonding relationship with those surrounding us.
This virtue of mind has quite an impact on our overall health, as modern neurosciences found out by investigating the human brain more closely.
Just look at recent research of, inter alia,
The researchers’ basic findings:
Laughter, as the expression of mental amusement relieves medical conditions with this form of ‘social glue’ in many different ways.
E.g., by activating the lateral hypothalamus in the brain as a result of amused laughter, this can have a positive effect on, inter alia, reducing pain perception, and blood pressure. Same is when regions of ventromedial prefrontal cortex are activated, endorphins are released which can decrease pain. Also, by activating the amygdale in the brain, this may have an impact on processing memories and on positive emotional reactions. This is important, as negative emotions in form of depression and anxiety increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Just as a brief abstract.
Just as philosopher Bertrand Russell put it right:
“Laughter is the most inexpensive and most effective wonder drug.”
