Women with a great sense of humor were 73% less likely to die due to illness vesselsand hearts. Such interesting regularity was recently announced by Norwegian scientists, noting that women have a 48% lower risk of dying for any reason, if they know how to have fun and have a good sense of humor.
The researchers obtained such results as a result of an analysis of information about almost 55 thousand volunteers. The purpose of the scientists was to determine how a sense of humor is reflected in the likelihood of death due to oncological diseases, infectious and cardiovascular disease, as well as COPD.
It was also determined that those ladies who know how to joke and laugh were 83% less likely to die due to attacks of infections. It is interesting that in men the presence of a sense of humor only affected death due to infectious diseases - in “humorous” representatives of the stronger sex, this risk decreased by 74%.
Scientists have noted the likelihood that with age, men are likely to lose their penchant for humor. In addition, stress hormones - cortisoland others - negatively affect the function of the immune system. If a person laughs a lot, then the level of cortisol and other hormones in the body does not increase too much.
Meanwhile, researchers from Canada provide simple but very effective advice for those who wish to extend their life: you just need to exercise more often. Recently, scientists have determined that a simple exercise or exercise that a person performs regularly helps prevent death from heart attackin old age. In an experiment conducted by experts, several hundred people who suffered coronary heart disease, as well as a number of other heart problems, pedaled on an exercise bike.
As a result, those who had a good level of physical fitness were much better at handling the loads, thereby demonstrating that the likelihood of recurrence of heart problems was either strokethey have much lower. Therefore, scientists advise not to ignore exercise, even for those who already have certain health problems.
