Laughter, A Natural Pain Killer

Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, and produces a general sense of well-being. Medicos believe that 100 to 200 laughs a day are the equivalent of about ten minutes of rowing or jogging. You can liken it to having your foot on your own body's accelerator. It is said to be "part of the arsenal helping to fight disease." And luckily you can not build up "immunity" to these natural reactions.
