Reader’s Digest – The New Nostradamus?

University of Maryland researchers report that after subjects watched King Pin, which for research purposes is considered a funny movie, their blood vessels expanded and contracted more effectively in response to changes in blood flow. “It is conceivable that laughing may be important to maintain a healthy endothelium [lining of the blood vessels] and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease,” says researcher Michael Miller. In other words, laughter may indeed be the best medicine. Since Reader’s Digest predicted this years ago, it’s also safe to assume that it is indeed “All in a Day’s Work,” “Humor in Uniform” isn’t just camouflage, “Virtual Hilarity” is as good as the real thing, and condensing articles so people with ADHD can enjoy them was a smart idea long before that Utne guy could even read.
