Liar Liar Health’s on Fire

With Campaign 2012 coming to an end it seems like an appropriate time to take a look at what happens when a person tells a lie. But you may need a nurse to find the subjects to help you conduct your research. 

A study conducted by the University of Notre Dame has determined that telling even white lies could bring on a cold or the flu. If that’s true, we are going to need to build a few more hospital wings!  They says it’s because concocting a lie and having to cover your tracks can be hard work and stressful to your system. That lowers your immunity and leaves you prone to whatever is going around.

Here’s how it was tested…. students were split into two groups, one of which promised to tell the whole truth for 10 weeks. That group had significantly fewer health issues than the white-lairs. They even experienced fewer mental-health complaints, such as feeling tense or melancholy, and fewer physical complaints, such as sore throats and headaches.
