-aughing at Charlie Chaplin can

e a serious usiness. Chortling at a funny film may seem to e an activity

with few conse'uences for health, ut research shows that it does more than e(ercise the )/ or so face muscles involved in laughing. ,hen researchers showed a group of mothers with a ies diagnosed with ec8ema, Chaplin!s 2ard 3imes or a weather documentary, those who laughed at the funny film had higher levels of melatonin in their reast milk. And when their a ies were fed the melatonin-rich milk, they had fewer allergic reactions.

$esults show that laughter of mothers may e helpful in the treatment of infants with ec8ema," say the doctors at the Moriguchi-6eijinkai 2ospital in @apan, who carried out the study. 3he study is among the latest research to show that laughter, humour and happiness play a key role in good health and longevity, and can positively affect diseases and conditions as diverse as high lood pressure, flu, heart disease, arthritis and dia etes. As A2" nurses start attending laughter workshops to encourage them to lighten up and make hospital stays a more pleasant e(perience for patients, research is increasingly showing the value of laughter and humour. 3he concept that laughter is good for you is also eing used in therapy to improve 'uality of life, provide some pain relief, encourage rela(ation, and reduce stress. "ome centres now provide some kind of humour therapy MNO one in five Aational Cancer +nstitute treatment centres in the B" offer it MNO and it can involve watching films, listening to tapes, reading ooks or attending humour workshops. +t can also e com ined with e(ercises, such as yoga.

#ut can it do more than ease stress and act as a distraction9 Can laughter actually affects the progression of illness, oost the immune system, and reduce symptoms of diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis9

+t has long een accepted that low mood, including depression, can have a negative effect on physical health. Patients who are depressed at the time of heart ypass surgery, for e(ample, are more than twice as likely to die during the following five years. "tress chemicals triggered y eing made redundant or getting divorced can also dou le the likelihood of death from heart disease or stroke. Aow research is showing that laughter and humour can have a positive effect on health and longevity. @ust how is not clear, ut studies are throwing up some clues. 2appiness and laughter have een shown to increase natural killer cell activity in lood and free radical-scavenging capacity in saliva, as well as lowering levels of the stress hormone cortisol. +t is also thought that laughter causes the release of special neurotransmitter su stances in the rain, endorphins, that help control pain. And there are more direct physical effects of laughter, including increased reathing, more o(ygen use, and higher heart rate.

"ome research suggests that laughter can oost the immune system. ,hen researchers at @apan!s 1saka Bniversity ?raduate "chool of Medicine showed a >4-minute funny film to a group of men and women, they found that that lood levels of natural killer cells activity increased y )=.4 per cent.

2appiness also oosts the immune system. A study at #irmingham Bniversity found a link etween higher levels of anti odies to flu and eing in a happy marriage. 3hose with the highest marital satisfaction had the higher anti ody responses to a flu vaccine after four weeks. A second study the Bniversity of Aorth Carolina shows happiness in a marriage was linked to lower lood pressure, and fewer stress hormones.

A study from the &oundation for Advancement of +nternational "cience, also in @apan, showed that laughter seems to lower levels of a protein involved in the progression of dia etic nephropathy, a kidney disease that occurs as a result of dia etes and which is the leading cause of kidney failure. -evels dropped su stantially and immediately after

watching a comedy show. "3he eneficial effects of laughter on preventing the e(acer ation of dia etic nephropathy are strongly suggested," say the researchers.

#ut one of the most important findings on the effects of laughter is its impact on inflammation, which plays a key role in a wide range of diseases, from arthritis to cancer, and which is a component of many age-related chronic diseases that often cause disa ility. $esearch reported in the 1(ford Bniversity Press medical journal, $heumatology, showed that lood levels of key inflammatory compounds dropped considera ly after patients with rheumatoid arthritis watched a humorous film.

3he researchers recorded amounts of what they call "mirthful laughter" and found that levels of interleukin =, a cytokine that plays a central role in inflammation, dropped significantly in the arthritis patients, ut not in a healthy comparison group. 3he anti-inflammatory effects have also een shown to last for .) or more hours after the laughter has su sided.

Pain can e eased y laughter too. ,hen researchers at the Bniversity of California e(posed children aged etween seven and .= to a pain e(periment, where they put their hands into very cold water, those who watched a funny video and laughed were a le to tolerate more pain.

,hile the mechanisms involved in the effects of laughter on immune and other ody systems are poorly understood, some effects have more straightforward e(planations. -aughter is thought to trigger changes in reathing patterns that may have a therapeutic effect for patients with chronic lung disease. +n some of the latest research at Bniversity 2ospital #asel in "wit8erland, doctors have een testing the idea that laughter can reduce hyperinflation in patients with chronic o structive pulmonary disease, which has een estimated to effect up to D//,/// people in the B6. $esults show that humour therapy reduced hyperinflation in patients who have severe C1P%. %ieters, too, may e unlikely eneficiaries of the direct physical effects of laughter. $esearchers at Meharry Medical College, Aashville, have gone to some lengths to calculate the energy e(pended in a laugh. ,ith the help of four funny film clips, a calorimeter, a heart rate monitor, and digitised audio data for counting the num er of laughs, they worked out that the energy loss from laughter was the e'uivalent of from /.>D-..</ k@;min F/..D-/.<. kcal;minG. "?enuine voiced laughter causes a ./ to )/ per cent increase in energy use and heart rate," they say.

3hat means, it!s suggested, that .4 minutes of jollity a day MNO or half an episode of 1nly fools and 2orses MNO could e enough to laugh away the effects of a small chocolate ar.

-ose weight while you sleep. #y Psychology3oday +magine... shedding pounds simply y spending more time in never-neverland. "ounds like something out of a latenight infomercial. #ut two studies show a striking connection etween amount of sleep and levels of appetite-regulating hormones in the ody. 3he findings suggest that chronic sleep deprivation could e making you fat. American adults have cut their average nightly sleep time y nearly two hours in the last */ years. And while we!ve lost sleep, we!ve gained weight: +n .D=/, only one out of four adults was overweight, and one out of nine was considered o ese. Aow, two out of three adults are overweight, and nearly one out of three is o ese. Previous research had shown an association etween shorter sleep time and higher ody mass inde(, ut no one knew why, says %r. "hahrad 3eheri, an endocrinologist at #ristol Bniversity, and lead author of one of the two studies. 2e and his colleagues used data from the ,isconsin "leep Cohort, which has tracked the sleep ha its of over .,/// volunteers for .> years. 3hey found that those people who slum ered Fon averageG five compared to eight hours each night had a higher ody mass inde(. And when the researchers collected lood samples from the volunteers, they discovered that the sleep-deprived had higher levels of ghrelin in their lood. ?hrelin is a hormone produced in the stomach that sends out hunger signals to the rain, which then commands you to e interested in food. At the same time the sleep-deprived had high levels of hunger-stimulating ghrelin, they had lower levels of leptin. -eptin is another appetite-regulating hormoneK it!s produced y fat cells and delivers satiation signals to the rain. 3he particular hormonal ratio of high ghrelin;low leptin was likely encouraging the group to load up on unnecessary calories #efore this, people thought o esity was the result of sitting on your utt and stuffing your face," 3eheri says. "#ut it turns out sleep has an influence. +t makes sense to me personally, ecause when + was a sleep-deprived resident, + always had the munchies."

3he second study hails from the Bniversity of Chicago!s sleep la oratory. +t shows that sleep loss has an immediate effect on the ody!s levels of ghrelin and leptin. A few nights of insomnia could thus trick your rain into thinking your ody needs more food. +n the sleep la , a small group of young men were forced to function on four hours of sleep a night for si( days. 3he ne(t year, they returned to the la , ut were allowed a full night!s rest for si( nights, so that researchers could directly compare their hormone levels and appetite. %uring their sleep-deprived week, the men not only showed lower levels of leptin and higher levels of ghrelin, ut they also reported stronger cravings for sweet, fatty and salty foods. "ound familiar9",hile there is a lot of attention on diet and e(ercise Sfor weight lossT, these two studies underscore the importance of ade'uate sleep," says 3erry 0oung, co-author of 3eheri!s study and professor of population health sciences at the Bniversity of ,isconsin. "Bnfortunately, people think of sleep as an irresponsi le activity. +t!s as if they are eing macho, and want to prove how usy and important their lives are. + predict someday that attitude will e as socially unaccepta le as smoking M0 own summary: .- +f you sleep enough, you will lose weight )- +f you stay a weak all the night, you will gain much weight <-?od didn!t create anything to waste so that the night for sleep and the morning for life making. *- $earrange your life to comfort your ody and give a time for every thing.
