BBC: Laughter boosts blood vessels

Sounds like good advice:

"Thirty minutes of exercise three times a week, and 15 minutes of laughter on a daily basis is probably good for the vascular system."

Forget the drama's. Watch comedies. Reminds me of a poster I saw that claims children average 500 smiles a day while adults only average 15. Why do we stop smiling? Further on in the article, there's this quote:

"UK heart experts said there was increasing interest in the idea that positive emotions benefited health."

Just an idea? Isn't it just blindingly obvious that there's a big causal relationship between emotion and health?
