Meditation is good for the heart image

Meditation seems to be good for the heart. Meditators are less likely to have diabetes or suffer from a stroke and coronary artery disease, researchers have discovered.

The full list of heart health benefits is impressive. Meditators are only half as likely to have coronary artery disease—a precursor of a heart attack when arteries become blocked and harden—and are far less likely to have high cholesterol levels, or suffer from diabetes, have a stroke and suffer from high blood pressure (hypertensive).

Researchers from the Baylor College of Medicine surveyed more than 61,000 people, around 10 percent of whom regularly meditated, and the most common techniques were focused attention and awareness.

The findings confirm those of a 2017 study, but the researchers say they can't definitively prove meditation reduces heart disease. People who meditate could also have a healthier lifestyle, such as having a better diet and exercising.

Read all about it - but only in WDDTY

From now on, you won't be able to buy WDDTY in a store, as we are reverting to a subscription-only magazine. The reason goes to the very heart of what this publication stands for. As a newsstand title, we were being censored in all sorts of subtle and not-so-subtle ways by a retail trade that chose never to support press freedoms. But we don't want to stop you from getting vital information which is why we've curated this special subscription offer just for you. By subscribing you can still get direct access to all this information every month, via a subscription, as thousands of others do.
