On 6 January 2006 ConsumerAffairs.Com reported: On the website, Henry J. Fishman, MD reported: A research study published in the American Journal of Cardiology has shown that the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme leads to improved health in many categories, including reduction of high blood pressure, and leads to increased lifespan. 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.

The study, demonstrating that the practice of the TM Programme reduced the death rate among the elderly and promoted longevity, was based on the health statistics over an 18-year period of a group of 203 individuals with high blood pressure, who had an average age of 71 years.

Some participants were taught the Transcendental Meditation Programme; those in the control group were taught different modalities such as muscle relaxation or behavioural programmes.

According to the article: 'The Transcendental Meditation group had a 23 per cent reduction in death from all causes, a 30 per cent reduction in deaths from cardiovascular diseases, and a 49 per cent reduction in the death rate from cancer.'

It was deduced that the practice of TM, which reduces risk factors for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke, and hardening of the arteries, can lead to a longer and healthier life for individuals.

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.
