On 10 May 2005 LA Times reported: 'Practising Transcendental Meditation...may have benefits beyond stress reduction. It might actually help you live longer.' Citing a research study which shows that seniors practising the Transcendental Meditation Programme extended their life span by 23 per cent, the LA Times went on to quote Dr Robert Schneider, the principal author of the study, as saying, 'This paints a strong picture of how [Transcendental Meditation] can restore the body and promote better health in the long term.' It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.

Dr Schneider is the director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa. He collaborated with researchers at five universities and medical centers, including the Medical College of Georgia and the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, in the first-of-its-kind, long-term study on the benefits of TM on those with mildly elevated blood pressure.

Reporter Daniel Costello concluded by saying, 'Researchers can't say for sure how meditation lowers death rates, but studies have shown meditation can reduce risk factors associated with heart diseases and other chronic illnesses.'

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
