In the global News Conference on 28 February, Dr Robert Schneider, a leading preventative cardiologist, spoke about the decreased depression in individuals participating in the latest study on Transcendental Meditation and congestive heart failure.

Dr Robert Schneider reported that one important finding in this latest study on Transcendental Meditation was that the subjects had reduced depression.

This is significant, Dr Schneider said, because individuals with congestive heart failure suffer from depression since they cannot do very much in their lives any more and they have such very poor life expectancy.

'Also those with depression get heart failure more,' Dr. Schneider said, 'because the stress hormones released from the brain into the rest of the body actually impair heart functioning.'

'We found that this mind-body intervention improves the body and improves the mind,' said Dr Schneider, 'presumably because of the coordination between the mind and the body, and because of the enlivenment of the common basis of the mind and body' that Dr John Hagelin, Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace and also hosting the global News Conference, has described so well from the point of view of quantum physics, the Unified Field-based perspective, said Dr. Schneider.
