People who laugh live longer!

Published

Laughter by definition is the action or sound of laughing.

Often triggered by something funny and humorous, many experts agree laughter is the medicine for everything.

If we are to move with that notion, then the experts might be onto to something because according to research, people who laugh a lot tend to live longer.

According to a large study published in the April 2016 issue of Psychosomatic Medicine, women with a strong sense of humour were found to live longer in spite of illness, especially cardiovascular disease and infection.

While their male counterparts seem to be protected against infection.

Norwegian researchers reported findings from a 15-year study on the link between sense of humour and mortality among 53 556 women and men in their country.

The team assessed the cognitive, social and affective components of humour using a validated questionnaire.

They also examined death from specific conditions: heart disease, infection, cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Their findings show that for women, high scores on humours cognitive component were associated with 48% less risk of death from all causes, a 73% lower risk of death from heart disease and an 83% lower risk of death from infection.

For men, a link was found only for the risk of death from infection. Those with high humour scores had a 74% reduced risk.

Simply put, a laughter a day keeps you alive in every way.

A BABY boy was born with three 4-5s in Iraq.

According to Live-Science magazine, the baby was born with three 4-5s in the first-ever reported case of human triphallia, the condition in which three phalluses form during embryonic development.

According to the publication, the child, first seen by doctors as a three-month-old baby, underwent surgery to remove two of the phalluses, which were small projections at the base of the 4-5 and scrotum.

The third phallus was in the usual location.

According to a case study in the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports published in November, the boy was doing well at a follow-up visit a year after surgery.

According to world health experts, extra penises are a rare congenital condition, occurring only once in every five million to six million live births.

The level of development of these extra phalluses differs in individuals.

In the case of the child in Iraq, the two additional penises contained the erectile tissue, called corpus cavernosum, which becomes engorged with blood during arousal, as well as a tissue called corpus spongiosum, which helps support the urethra, the tube through which urine passes.
