WHAT THE MEDICAL PROFESSION SAYS ABOUT LAUGHTER AND HEALING
"Experiencing joyful laughter reduces stress hormones, lowers blood pressure and elevates a person’s mood...the act of laughing increases endorphins, sending dopamine to the brain. This provides a sense of pleasure and reward, and the immune system also functions better."
Assoc. Professor Lee Berk
Loma Linda University School of Medicine
"Laughter in and of itself cannot cure cancer nor prevent cancer, but laughter as part of the full range of positive emotions including hope, love, faith, strong will to live, determination and purpose,
can be a significant and indispensable aspect of the total fight for recovery."
Harold H. Benjamin PhD
