Laughter truly is the best medicine

 article about Laughter truly is the best medicine
Scientists have discovered that laughing actually burns calories and may help you lose weight.

It's no match for the regular forms of excercise, but laughing out loud for 10-15 minutes a day burns 10-40 calories, the amount in a small piece of chocolate.

The study, undertaken on students in Tennessee, US, may be the first of its kind, and indeed the first to discover that laughter produces energy.
