Laughter, sex and physical exercise have the same health effects

The scientists from Stanford University found out from their recent study that laughing 100 times has the same health effects as when you do physical exercise for 10 minutes. When we laugh, the body involves about 80 muscles and more pressure on the abdominal muscles that can maintain healthy intestinal tract.

As with sex, passionate sex can burn up to 200 calories. The amount is almost the same with walking for 15 minutes. During sex, heart rate increased, this is the same as people who exercise in the fitness center.

Facial muscle work when we laugh. Activity of facial muscles can help increase blood supply to the brain. This gives a better mental capacity, therefore fresh ideas or decisions can be taken. Recent studies also show the same thing with sex benefits for the brain, that orgasm can increase the women IQ.

Whether laughing or sex can stimulate the immune system, people who laugh often are very rare from suffering flu, fever or other illness. This is because when we laugh the body activates cells that promote our immune system.

While Sex is also giving the exact same effect, it was proven that sexual activity can enhance the immune system. Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania find people who have sex 1-2 times a week had immunoglobulin A antibody levels 30 percent higher than people who rarely have sex. From this study it's concluded that laughter, sex and physical exercise have the same health effects.
