Blood sugar levels go down and thus it helps prevent diabetes… and People who laugh have more energy, they feel more relaxed and have less stress.

Laughter is a good workout for the abs, the shoulders, and for the whole body.

Laughter is a physical release like crying that brings about immense changes in the body, a cleansing of sorts.

People who are in pain who started watching funny movies have their pain go away and they sleep better.
