Laughter Can Boost Appetite

Results of the study, from Loma Linda University's Schools of Allied Health (SAHP) and Medicine, showed that laughing not only enhances a positive mood, but lowers stress hormones, increases immune activity, and lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, similar to moderate exercise.

In the study, 14 healthy volunteers were recruited to a three-week study to examine the effects that eustress (mirthful laughter) and distress have on modulating the key hormones that control appetite, Times of India reports.

The results of the study showed that the people who watched the violent video seen no change in their hormone level while the ones who watched the comedies seen a spike in hormone levels similar to those seen after physical activity and exercise. It is always been said that exercise can help boost a person’s appetite.

Berk went on to say that the study did not prove that laughter is just as good as working out or that it indeed helps with a person’s appetite, he said that it could open the possibility that people who are bed ridden or can’t partake in physical activity to help boost appetite that there is a safer and viable option in helping them eat, Tech Jackal informs.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
