Apparently, along with reducing stress and improving blood flow and blood vessel function, laughter helps relax muscles and creates a sense of well-being. This can help to lower the blood pressure. As high blood pressure is linked to stroke this has to be good news.

So laughter really is the best medicine. Maybe an apple (and a joke) a day keeps the doctor away!
