Abstract: "Laughter is the best medicine,” "Hope is what keeps us alive.” The connections between emotion, attitude, health & disease have been known as anecdotes for a long time. For the last 3 decades or so, molecular biologists, epidemiologists & statisticians have been examining these connections under the microscope. Can these investigations tell us something about … our souls?
