On 12 May 2005 Houston Chronicle reported: 'Participants who used Transcendental Meditation (TM) twice a day for 20 minutes had a 23 per cent lower death rate from all causes and nearly a third lower death rate from heart disease than those who did not practise the form of meditation.' Daniel Costello's original LA Times article focusing on these remarkable findings was reprinted in the Houston Chronicle. 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 the article referred to was recently published in the American Journal of Cardiology. Researchers from five universities and medical centers followed 202 seniors with elevated blood pressure, some of whom learned TM while others learned various relaxation techniques or took health education classes.

The article quoted Dr Robert Schneider, the principal author of the study who said, 'This paints a strong picture of how (the Transcendental Meditation Programme) can restore the body and promote better health in the long term'.

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.
