How does video laughter benefit health and well-being?
Scientists and doctors have long known that there is a health benefit associated with laughter, and that health and well-being are connected. Funny videos make it possible to distribute laughter at a high rate, through syndication and redistribution over broadcast tv, cable, and the internet.
Therefore, it is our theory that funny video is in fact more potent for the public health than humor which goes completely unnoticed by the people at large.
In a University of Maryland Medical Center study of the effect of laughter on health and the living condition in 2000, researchers discovered that
“Laughter, along with an active sense of humor, may help protect you against a heart attack, according to a new study by cardiologists at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore. The study, which is the first to indicate that laughter may help prevent heart disease, was presented at the American Heart Association’s 73rd Scientific Sessions on November 15 in New Orleans. The researchers found that people with heart disease were 40 percent less likely to laugh in a variety of situations compared to people of the same age without heart disease.”
The health benefits of laughter study, conducted on 300 people, half of whom had survived heart attacks or bypyass surgery, and the other half of whom were healthy and had not had either of those health problems, found that
“We could perhaps read something humorous or watch a funny video and try to find ways to take ourselves less seriously,” according to Michael Miller, M.D., F.A.C.C., director of the Center for Preventive Cardiology at the University of Maryland Medical Center. “The recommendation for a healthy heart may one day be — exercise, eat right and laugh a few times a day.”
The scientific conclusion, as stated by Dr. Michael Miller, shows that the main lesson learned from the study, demonstrated that after all,
“The old saying that ‘laughter is the best medicine,’ definitely appears to be true when it comes to protecting your heart.”
