On 11 May 2005 Inland Valley Daily Bulletin reported: The Transcendental Meditation Programme, long known to be effective in 'reducing a number of health risk variables, including blood pressure, smoking, stress, cholesterol, and atherosclerosis', has now been shown to extend lifespan by as much as 23 per cent. Reprinting a previously published article by Allan J Comeau, PhD, the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin offered readers an overview of the study which was published in the 2 May issue of American Journal of Cardiology. 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.

In his article, Comeau noted that 'TM has already been associated with reductions in stress levels, such as blood pressure, an indicator directly related to hypertension', referring to two studies published earlier this year. He also congratulated the TM organization for their successful efforts in 'presenting its methods to the public and showing tangible benefits for those who apply themselves to this form of meditation'.

Wondering if the results could be similar with other types of meditation, Comeau urged more studies to be done to confirm the results.

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.
