The group L patients got into it and were faithful to the minimum exposure to humor time of half an hour on a daily basis for a period of one year.
After a year follow-up, the experts evaluated the patients in both groups by tests such as measuring cholesterol levels, levels of C-reactive protein, a marker of tenderness thought to be linked to cardiovascular disease.
