On 15 May 2005 The State reported: It has long been known that Transcendental Meditation makes for a higher quality of life. Now, one of the first long-term studies of the technique shows that TM provides a higher quantity of life as well, by the technique's automatic reduction of risk factors for heart disease. 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.

TM naturally reduces high blood pressure, stress, and smoking, —as shown in previous studies. What is new is that research shows that practitioners of TM seem to have lower death rates.

The lead author of the study is Dr Robert Schneider, director of the Center of Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, who is continuing to pursue Transcendental Meditation trials along with the Medical College of Wisconsin.

'Intuitively it makes sense that relaxation may have a benefit on cardiovascular disease mortality,' said Theodore Kotchen, a professor of medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin. 'It is provocative and very encouraging.'

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.
