Doncha love surveys?
There’s always a study costing millions to tell us something we know instinctively.
Here’s one you’ll love.

Several years ago, researchers from the University of Maryland Medical Center reported that people with a good sense of humor are less likely to have heart disease. The study used questionnaires to gather data on 300 people, half of whom had a history of heart disease.

Those with the previous heart problems were 40 percent less likely to laugh at a humorous situation, and often did not even recognize humor. They were more likely to display anger and hostility.

Unfortunately, it is still not known if humor protects from heart disease, or if heart disease merely causes folks to lose their sense of humor.
