Remember More Of Your Punchlines By Listening To Ours — Dave’s Diary
Did you know that the Good Book has something good to say about a good laugh? Proverbs 17:22 – A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. Translation – Laughter really is the best medicine and according to new research humor can improve short-term memory in older adults. To find this, U.S. researchers had a group of 20 older adults watch a funny video for 20 minutes, while a control group just sat calmly doing nothing. Then all participants were given memory tests and had a saliva sample tested for stress hormones. Researchers found that those who watched the funny video scored better on the short-term memory tests and had lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol in their saliva. Researchers explain, saying that the less stressed you are the better your memory is. (Yahoo)
On the Morning News we’ve been known to cause a spit-take a time or two and we always strive to weave humor into our news and information. So apparently the comedy of Kevin, Lance and Dave is medicinal in nature lowering stress and improving memory. However under Obamacare, the cost will now have to go from nothing to an 8-thousand dollar individual personal deductible to listen in. Can he do that? Yes we can!
Kidding, we are still free and worth every penny…er..uh… See you on the radio!
