How Reading Helps

Take ten minutes a day to peruse books or magazines, and you'll fortify your defenses against colds within a week.  Well, I was surprised to hear about that, too.  But according to experts, reading stories or articles about other people stimulates the release of oxytocin, a bonding hormone that also counteracts the body's stress responses.  This hormonal shift can up the body's output of infection-fighting white blood cells by 20 percent.  So you see hubs, that's one more reason why I should get more Amazon books and magazines, LOL.  Shall we go shopping now?  :)
