If Meditation Were a Drug It'd Be a Billion-Dollar Blockbuster

A new study suggests that meditation can cut heart attacks by almost 50 percent. "If Transcendental Meditation were a drug conferring so many benefits, it would be a billion-dollar blockbuster," says Dr. Norman Rosenthal of the National Institute of Health.

The Telegraph reports on this latest study conducted at Medical College of Wisconsin among 201 men and women (average age of 59) who suffered from the narrowing of arteries in their hearts for nine years:

Professor Theodore Kotchen, the co-author of the study adds, "These findings are the strongest documented effects yet produced by a mind-body intervention on cardiovascular disease. The effect is as large or larger than major categories of drug treatment for cardiovascular disease."

Namaste to that!
