Guide for Corporate Tax Preparation

Annually, millions of companies worldwide file corporate taxes which can really be a cause of concern due to the complexities involved. But to truly understand what corporate tax preparation is all about, it must be understood that businesses are classified into three main categories: small, medium, and large. Understanding how a business is classified is beneficial since the each category has its own requirements. First, a business corporation is technically known as small if its annual gross income does not exceed $2 million. Thus, many professional financial advisers often suggest to a small business to become a corporation to lessen tax costs and prevent personal lawsuits.

A critical information you should learn about corporate tax preparation are various income and deductions of a corporation which must be reported according to the annual accounting method used by the business. Usually, two known methods are being used today – the Cash Basis and the Accrual Basis. Knowing the difference between the two is good since the reports submitted to the authorities must be accurate and complete. In situations where your business apply the Cash Basis method, then corporate tax preparation should include income tax on the year it was received and minus the business-related expenses in the tax year it was paid.

On the contrary,when the Accrual Basis method is applied, there’s a different way to do corporate tax preparation. Preferably instead of making deductions of business related expenses in the tax year it was paid, the deduction must be made on the year those expenses accrued. At this point, you understand why corporate tax preparation is a complex process since it depends on some factors beginning with the accounting method. The following list gives you a rundown of what you need for corporate tax preparation:

1) A copy of the previous corporation tax return filed with the IRS, state, & city.

2) The filing receipt you received from the state where the business was incorporated.

3) The corporation’s federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) given by the IRS and the State Identification Number from the state where it was incorporated.

4) Documents filed and accepted by the IRS and the state if the corporation has elected to file as a subchapter S corporation.

5) A copy of your state sales tax certificate.

There are still some forms that can be submitted so it would be good to solicit the opnion of a corporate tax preparation specialists.

Spanish Prime Minister’s Teen Daughters Are Goth?

The Older Generation Fashion Style vs. The New Generation Fashion Trends

It amazes me how times change and evolve. The younger generation
believes that their individualistic fashion trends are better than the older generation’s
sense of fashion style. Moreover, they make personal statements by adorning
themselves with tattoo’s, body pear-sing, and Gothic style clothing. They
honestly think that this is the way they should make their generations trendsetting
fashion statement. However, it only
makes them look and act like freaks. Moreover, they think that the older
generation is just out of touch with today’s fashion trends. However, I feel as
though my generation was more in touch with fashion style then trends. Moreover,
we did not need to make our statements of individuality by dressing up like
vampires. Therefore, I have concluded that the older generation had very
different fashion values then today’s generation.

Moreover, let us look at resent events; a scandal
broke out over the Goth dressing of Prime Minister of Spain’s two daughters.
Moreover, “Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapaterohis Zapatero has tried to
keep his daughters, Laura, 16, and Alba, 13, out of the public eye but the
picture taken with President and Mrs. Obama has gone viral.” (Cheryl Phillips,
2009). Furthermore, why would he allow his daughters to go to a political
function in Goth Dress and then try to get the photo’s yanked from the
internet? It just goes to show how embarrassed he is of his own daughter’s unprofessional
and inappropriate choice of clothing. Therefore, it further proves my point,
that his generation would never tolerate the embarrassment of publicly
displaying his daughter’s apparent lack of self restraint and loose fashion values.

Futhermore, the older generation
believed in dressing professionally and appropriately for the occasion. We were
taught to never give anyone any cause to single you out for ridicule.
Furthermore, we were taught the value of self restraint and making a good first
impression. Therefore, the repercussions that this one fallacy in judgment will
only further the cause of the younger generation’s lack of values. Moreover, “The black clothing worn by both
girls and the calf-high boots worn by one of his daughter would most certainly
cause Spain’s adolescent goth’s to rejoice.” (Cheryl Phillips, 2009). The older
generation knew better than to feed the younger generations fashion trends.
Moreover, that is the exact reason that he never let his daughters to be
photographed up until now. Furthermore, “The Prime Minister had no idea of this
when he tried to stop the spread of the photo.”

In conclusion, we as the older
generation must guard against the younger generations trendy fashion
statements. Furthermore, we must bring back the fashion values of the older
generation’s sense of fashion style. Therefore, I have concluded that the older
generation had very different fashion values then today’s generation.

Fair Tax – What Is The FairTax Act Law?

Fair Tax Act

You might be wondering who is behind The Fair Tax Act. Is it
the crazy left wing liberals? Maybe it’s the wild eyed extremists on the right?
Or is it those loony libertarians? However,
supporters of the Fair Tax Act (H.R.
25) transcend all party lines.

Moreover, the Fair Tax supporters don’t fit any predetermined
mold. They come from all walks of life, rich, poor, upper class, and middle
class. No, it’s pretty hard to peg Fair Tax supporters. Therefore, just like the
Boston Tea party protesters, they represent a broad cross section of America. They
are liberal, conservative, libertarian, and everything else in between. Moreover,
it is an American cause and believe it or not, it is not about politics at all.
It’s about taking back control of our government, and returning power back to
the people, where it belongs in the first place. That is why I believe that the “Fair Tax Act” is better
taxation with proper representation.

What Is The Fair Tax Act (HR 25, S 296) you might ask?

It Is the nonpartisan legislation. It
abolishes all federal personal and corporate income taxes, gift, estate,
capital gains, alternative minimum, Social Security, Medicare, and
self-employment taxes and replaces them with one simple, visible, federal
retail sales tax administered primarily by existing state sales tax
authorities. (, 2009a)

Therefore, the Fair Tax is a
single-rate of 23% of federal retail
sales tax collected only once, at the final point of purchase of new goods and
services for personal consumption only (it is the final sellable product).
Furthermore, all used items, and business-to-business purchases for the
production of goods and services are not taxed. A rebate makes the effective
rate progressive. Moreover,

The Fair Tax Act (H.R. 25) has several objectives

Including tax simplification and economic growth. It abolishes the Internal
Revenue Service (IRS), the federal agency that currently collects and
administers federal taxes, and shifts the vast majority of these
responsibilities to the individual state sales tax authorities.

Adopting such a fundamental reform would have
implications for the entire process of collecting and administering taxes in
the United States. The roles and responsibilities of governments at all levels,
businesses, and individuals would change under the FairTax.

Individuals would no longer file tax returns,
businesses would be responsible for collecting and remitting the tax to the
states, and state governments would process the revenue collections and forward
the appropriate revenue amount to the federal government. (Tuerck, David G, 2007)

However, under our current Income Tax System, an individual
can make an undisclosed amount of unreported income and not report it on their
tax return. Moreover, this act of tax evasion is responsible for sucking
billions and trillions of revenue away from our national treasury on an annual

America has two economies: First, there’s the
legitimate economy, in which craftsmen are licensed and employers and employees
pay taxes. Then there’s the fast-growing underground economy, where millions of
nannies, construction workers, landscapers and others are paid off the books,
their incomes largely untaxed. The best guess as to the size of the output of
this shadow economy is about $970 billion, or nearly 9% that of the real economy.
It could soon pass $1 trillion. (McTague,
Jim. 2005)

Furthermore, this willful
act of tax evasion, which is wide spread on all economic levels, would come to
a complete halt should the FairTax Act be implemented. Therefore, this act ensures
Social Security and Medicare funding for future generations to enjoy. However,
this security that might not be around by the time you or I retire under the
current economic deficit. Furthermore,
there would not be any more tax shelters for the rich to get richer and the
poor to stay poorer. Moreover, the Fair
Tax Act closes all loopholes and brings fairness to taxation. Therefore, the Act brings with it transparency
and accountability to the tax policy.

The FairTax taxes us only on what we choose
to spend on new goods or services, not on what we earn. The FairTax is a fair,
efficient, transparent, and intelligent solution to the frustration and
inequity of our current tax system. (,

Payroll Taxes

The Fair Tax plan is a comprehensive proposal
that replaces all federal income and payroll based taxes with an integrated
approach including a progressive national retail sales tax, a prebate to ensure
no American pays federal taxes on spending up to the poverty level,
dollar-for-dollar federal revenue neutrality, and, through companion
legislation, the repeal of the 16th Amendment. (, 2009a)

Therefore, This Act will allow workers to keep their entire paychecks, retirees to
keep their entire pensions and will provide refunds in advance for the tax on
purchases of basic necessities. However, under the 16th Amendment we
impose taxes on wages, social security, pensions, and offer only the Welfare
system to assist with basic needs for low income families. Therefore, the
Probate works like this:

valid Social Security cardholders who are U.S. residents receive a monthly
prebate equivalent to the Fair Tax paid on essential goods and services, also
known as the poverty level expenditures. The prebate is paid in advance, in
equal installments each month. The size of the prebate is determined by the
Department of Health & Human Services’ poverty level guideline multiplied
by the tax rate. This is a well-accepted, long-used poverty-level calculation
that includes food, clothing, shelter, transportation, medical care, etc. (,

2009 Fair Tax Prebate Schedule

How The Fair Tax is collected

By retail businesses from the consumer, just as the current sales tax
that is currently collected. However, the Fair Tax is simply an additional line
on the current sales tax reporting form. Firstly, retailers collect the tax and
send it to the state taxing authority. Secondly, all businesses that are serving
as collection agents receive a fee for collection, and the states also receive
a collection fee. Thirdly, the tax
revenues from the states are then sent to the U.S. Treasury.

the FairTax Plan, poor people pay no net Fair Tax at all up to the poverty
level! Every household receives a rebate that is equal to the Fair Tax paid on
essential goods and services, and wage earners are no longer subject to the
most regressive and burdensome tax of all, the payroll tax. Those spending at
twice the poverty level pay a tax of only 11.5 percent — a rate much lower than
the income and payroll tax burden they bear today. (, 2009c)

However, our present income tax
system is one of the reasons that people are finding it so hard to get ahead
these days. Furthermore, this is also one of the reasons that our next
generation will not have a standard of living as high as ours. Therefore, our
current system of taxation is holding us back and making it to impossible to
improve our future generation’s standard of living.

Imagine The FairTax –

Fair Tax Dramatically Improves Economic Growth

the federal income tax, slow economic growth and recessions have a
disproportionately adverse impact on lower-income families.

in these families are more likely to lose their jobs, are less likely to have
the resources to weather bad economic times, and are more in need of the initial
employment opportunities that a dynamic, growing economy provides. Retaining
the present tax system makes economic progress needlessly slow, thus harming
low-income people the most.

In contrast, the FairTax dramatically improves economic growth and wage rates
for all, but especially for lower-income families and individuals. In addition
to receiving the monthly FairTax prebate, these taxpayers are freed from
regressive payroll taxes, the federal income tax, and the compliance burdens
associated with each. They pay no more business taxes hidden in the price of
goods and services, and used goods are tax free. (, 2009c)

Moreover, it is making it difficult
for our businesses to compete with the international markets and it is wasting valuable
resources by forcing us to complying with needless paperwork.

The current
U.S. income tax code is widely regarded by just about everyone as unfair,
complex, wasteful, confusing, and costly. Businesses and other organizations
spend more than six billion hours each year complying with the federal tax
code. Estimated compliance costs conservatively top $225 billion annually—costs
that are ultimately embedded in retail prices paid by consumers.

The Internal
Revenue Code cannot simply be “fixed,” which is amply demonstrated by
more than 35 years of attempted tax code reform, each round resulting in yet
more complexity and unrelenting, page-after-page, mind-numbing verbiage (now
exceeding 54,000 pages containing more than 2.8 million words). (Vance, Laurence M, 2005)

There is only
one word to describe the fact that the federal government now spends almost $3
trillion a year: obscene. At least 90 percent of what the federal government
spends is unconstitutional, wasteful, or against the limited-government principles
of the Founders. The only thing the Fair Tax does is change the way the state
confiscates the wealth of its citizens. As Congressman Ron Paul says: “The
real issue is total spending by government, not tax reform.” (Vance, Laurence M, 2005)

Fair Tax Benefits

Therefore, we as American’s can do better
and we must. However, some individuals would like taxes to completely disappear.

Because the Fair Tax is a consumption tax, Murray Rothbard’s conclusion
about consumption taxes is apropos:

The consumption tax, on the other hand, can only be regarded as a
payment for permission-to-live. It implies that a man will not be allowed to
advance or even sustain his own life, unless he pays, off the top, a fee to the
State for permission to do so. The consumption tax does not strike me, in its
philosophical implications, as one whit more noble, or less presumptuous, than
the income tax.

The Fair Tax does nothing to tame the federal leviathan. The solution is
nothing less than a drastic reduction or wholesale elimination of its revenue
source. What is fair about allowing the government to confiscate 23 percent of
the value of every new good and service? Fair Tax proponents may call it
necessary legislation, but I call it highway robbery. (Vance, Laurence M, 2005)

However, what individuals like the
above fail to understand is that,

Research on the price of consumer
goods reveals that up to 20% of all prices today represent hidden income taxes
and payroll taxes. Once these taxes are repealed and replaced with the FairTax,
it is likely that market pressure would force retail prices to fall.

Eliminating embedded taxes will also
do something else — it will remove significant price disadvantages suffered by
American producers competing with tax-free imports. Eliminating corporate
income taxes and capital gains taxes, which the Fair Tax would do, would likely
make the American economy the most desirable place in the world to do business.

Another benefit of the Fair Tax is
that, unlike other sales taxes, it would not hit the poorest Americans the hardest.
The Fair Tax proposal calls for sending every American a “prebate”
check to offset the cost of the national sales taxes paid by those living in
poverty. This feature would effectively exempt those living below the poverty
line from paying taxes to the federal government, and provide all taxpayers
with a reimbursement of a portion of taxes paid.

The Fair Tax rate is 23% on retail
sales when calculated “inclusively,” as are income tax rates. It
will, in a fairer, more transparent and less-expensive way, raise the same
amount of money the federal government now collects through the income and
payroll taxes. Because it would be levied on consumption at the final point of
sale, instead of on earnings, it would dramatically expand the tax base. The Fair Tax would collect revenue from the underground economy. Even illegal
immigrants and the 40 million foreign tourists who visit the U.S. each year
would pay it. (Linbeck, Leo, 2007)

FairTax Greatest Benefit

distributional effects of the Fair Tax have been extensively studied, and
although the proposal has distinct advantages for investors and wealth creation
across the income spectrum, the greatest benefit of the Fair Tax is to low- and
moderate-income Americans. The effect of eliminating regressive payroll taxes
is commonly overlooked when analyzing the Fair Tax, but it would have a very
significant impact, as these taxes represent the single largest tax burden on
these income earners.

Significantly, the Fair Tax eliminates all loopholes, gimmicks,
exemptions and deductions from the federal tax system. Under the Fair Tax,
Congress would no longer be able to reward friends, punish enemies or
manipulate behavior through the tax code. The Fair Tax would also eliminate the
lucrative tax lobbying practices that represent more than 50% of all lobby
dollars spent annually in Washington.

It’s no surprise, then, to see that vested interests have argued
against the Fair Tax and in favor of keeping the mortgage interest deduction.
But wouldn’t it be better for everyone to stop the IRS from withholding from
paychecks; to see the price of new homes — and all other goods — drop by
removing embedded costs; and to have interest rates fall as the savings rate
increases? Is it really in everyone’s interests to keep the income-tax system
so that one-third of taxpayers can go on deducting a portion of their mortgage
interest from their federal taxes?

There have been many tax reform proposals over the years, but
most of them simply call for reforming around the margins of the existing tax
system. The President’s Advisory Panel on Tax Reform was assembled by the Bush
administration and concluded its work a few years ago. Instead of seriously
looking at the Fair Tax, the panel looked at a very different type of
consumption tax, riddled with exemptions, and then declared that it would be
too expensive and that the rate would have to be far higher than the Fair Tax

In Conclusion

Politically, the Fair Tax will only become law once enough
citizens demand that it be enacted, overcoming the self-interest that members
of Congress and others have in holding onto the current system. It is debatable
whether a modern, citizen-led tax revolution is possible. But the growing
popularity (even among presidential candidates) of the Fair Tax suggests that
another Boston Tea Party may be at hand. (Linbeck,
Leo, 2007)

I want to see this country return to the
principles of personal freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Therefore,

Do women have the right to vote in this
country? Did we pass Prohibition? Did we repeal it? Do Civil Rights guarantee
freedoms far beyond the lunch counter and mass transit? Do free-market
economies dominate Eastern Europe, peoples once under the boot of communism?

All these were grassroots efforts that
effected significant changes in our nation and the world. Is the current income
tax system any less a yoke around the necks of otherwise free peoples? We think

Passing the original 16th Amendment and the income tax wasn’t easy and
repealing the income tax and the 16th Amendment won’t be easy either.

That is why the Fair Tax has undertaken to
build a grassroots movement and grassroots alliances to support the effort.
When the Fair Tax generates unprecedented economic growth in the first few
months of its effective date, citizens nationwide will make it clear to
Washington that they want to make the change permanent. But this will only
happen when the American people rally behind the effort, throw off the yoke,
and demand rectification of 90 years of wrongs done by the income tax. (,

Moreover, our great “America” was
founded upon these principals and somehow we have allowed our government to
slowly take away our freedom. Furthermore, it is time that the sleepers awaken
to a new dawn and we demand our freedom from taxation without caring
representation. Therefore, that is why I believe that the “Fair Tax Act” is better taxation with proper

Menoquil Review: An-Effective Menopausal Relief-Option

The closer women get to the dreaded “M” word (Menopause), the closer the symptoms approach: irritability, decreased sex drive, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, vaginal bleeding, increased urinary frequency, and the list goes on and on. As a result, many women go on begin Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). The problem is that these treatments have a ton of side effects and some of them are really scary. They include: Headaches, strokes, clotting, heart attacks and many others as well. As for me, I would rather go through the symptoms of hormone imbalance than take a chance with all of the side effects of hormone replacement therapy. NOTE: It is advised that you meet with a physician prior to beginning any medical treatment.

There are Hormone Replacement Therapy alternatives and some of them are quite good. In fact, we have an ad on this page for a very popular and reasonably priced product called Menozac. It is highly recommended and you can click on the ad for further information (They offer free samples as of the writing of this article).

Another product is called Menoquil. Like Menozac, it is an all natural alternative to the aforementioned. So, what exactly is Menoquil? It is made up of black cohash extract and other types of extracts as well. There have been studies that looked at the efficacy of this and other products such as Menozac and there have been some promising results as the isoflavones found in the product have shown to have a positive impact on cognitive functioning in addition to the other positive findings of reduction of hot flashes, etc..

In conclusion, I have looked into Menoquil and Menozac, comparing the tow against Hormone Replacement Therapy; I would personally go with the natural alternatives, as the former seems to have too many side effects. Between Menoquil and Menozac, I would go with Menozac.

About Fast Food Coupons

Most people that try to save money when they go shopping do so by clipping coupons from their Sunday newspaper. This is a tried and true method of getting money back at the local grocery market. I suggest that there is a better way to do this and it does not include shelling out a couple of bucks for the Sunday paper. No, all you have to do is open your computer and go on the internet. For those of you that are looking for coupons for your favorite fast food establishment, the web can be a great place to find discounts.

Online fast food coupons are not hard to find and they are some of the best ways to save the most money. When you use the internet to find coupons you will find that there are huge savings in store. Some of my favorite online fast food coupons have been shared here on this site. In fact, right now you can get a great deal on so many fast food establishments and grocery stores items just by knowing where to look on the internet. There are some basic strategies that you should employ to get the most bang for your buck when it comes to getting coupons on the internet. Here are a few:

1. Not all coupon deals are the same. Some require nothing more than a zip or email submit in order to get the deal they are pitching. In this case, all you have to do is fill in a zip code or an email address and you can win $250 for groceries or some other phenomenal deal. Personally, I would prefer to fill out a zip submit as this can be done in seconds.

2. Make sure that you do not put a credit card on the line in order to get something for free. In my world free means free and translates into not putting any money down at all in order to get the product I am going for.

Chronic Bronchitis Symptoms

If you have chronic bronchitis, it means that you have reoccurring symptoms for at least three months out of a consecutive two years. After other respiratory and cardiovascular diseases have been factored out, the diagnosis of chronic bronchitis then comes into the picture.

One of the causes for chronic bronchitis includes inflammatory damage of the bronchial tubes due to acute bronchitis that didn’t go away or chronic smoking. Chronic swelling of the bronchial tubes can be caused by other irritants as well, such as pollens, pollutants, and chemicals.

As chronic bronchitis prolongs and it’s contagious, there is a decrease in the amount of airflow. This is due to the thickening of the bronchial walls. When this happens, the inflammation has affected the lungs and has turned into COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

It is important for you to recognize acute and chronic bronchitis symptoms so that you can reach a proper diagnosis. This will help to prevent conditions like COPD, or help your doctor understand how to control it.

The best way to reduce symptoms of the condition is to avoid environmental factors that could problematic. For example, stop smoking if you smoke. Wear a mask if you are constantly exposed to airborne irritants in your workplace.

If needed, there are medical treatments that help persisting coughs. The most useful are bronchodilators. The effects, however, on long-term patients haven’t been studied.

The main reason why the human population coughs is because of chronic bronchitis. The symptoms are usually more moderate than acute symptoms, but having a continual cough and chest soreness doesn’t sound very pleasant.

If you can stay away from airborne irritants, you will most likely have better results in reducing your symptoms and signs.

Treatment should be under the advice of a medial doctor. Make sure you follow your doctor’s instructions even if it seems like you have gotten better.

Chronic bronchitis is known to come back quickly if treatment has halted or discontinued. If possible, do what you can to reduce the symptoms by controlling your environment. There are some medications that can help you in the process as your system begins to heal itself.

Nicotine Patch

It’s your life, and it’s your lungs, and it’s your health. Enough is enough and you are tired of the burning throat, lungs and burning chest feeling and morning coughing bouts you experience from cigarettes. You’ve heard about free nicotine patches and you’re ready to try them. Well, the truth is, there isn’t any free nicotine patches, but the great news is you’ll be able to purchase a nicotine patch that you can afford and is at the right strength you’ll need to help you quit smoking.

If your smoking habit is less than a pack a day, then you’ll be able to purchase a nicotine patch with seven to fourteen milligrams of nicotine in them. If you smoke more than a pack of cigarettes a day then you’ll need the patch 21 nicotine patch that contains twenty one milligrams of nicotine. As your body slowly loses its dependence on nicotine, you can purchase and use the lower amount nicotine patches at a lower cost.

Some on line offers or advertising may claim to have a free nicotine patch, and if you do come across such an ad or offer, be cautious. The nicotine patch you receive may not be a nicotine patch at all and it may not be safe. Some health insurance companies may help you with the cost of your nicotine patches so by all means check into this possibility. You may also find coupons on line or at the store that will help lower the cost of your nicotine patches.

The nicotine patch is a great alternative to smoking cigarettes because you are still getting the nicotine your body craves without the 4000 poison gases that cigarettes contain. Cigarettes contains carcinogens and may cause several different kinds of cancers throughout the body. The cigarette companies have increased the amount of nicotine in their cigarettes over 90% in the last ten to fifteen years in their endless pursuit to keep you hooked on their product while they keep their hands in your wallet. All at the cost of your health and well being.

The world wide web and Internet is full of free on line help and useful information that will help you kick the habit of smoking. If it takes you100 tries to quit, then take the100 tries. You are never a failure until you quit trying.

Raccoon Bait as a Raccoon Deterrent

Raccoons are a kind of animals found in North America, as that is their native place. They are supposed to be as long as two to three feet and they weigh from ten to thirty pound approximately. They have a grayish skin and a black mask like circle around their eyes. Though in wild the raccoons live in burrows made in hollow trees or in bush piles and underground, their favorite living places are under porches, patios and other structure in locality. The raccoons come out from their dens at night in search of food. They generally eat different kinds of food like—fruit, nuts, frogs, crayfish etc.  In locality they find food in compost piles and garbage cans. Using raccoon bait is necessary because they do much harm. While making their nest they can damage our roof and ventilators and most dangerously they carry diseases such as—rabies and raccoon roundworms.

You can adopt many steps to get rid of a raccoon. One of them is using raccoon bait. Just use fish—flavored food for cat or canned tuna and that will easily lead them to the cage. But as raccoons are nocturnal use these cages at night.

As raccoons are not frightened easily using the right raccoon deterrent is somewhat difficult. You can buy those easily online but loud noise or bright lights are not much effective deterrent. You can use some awful smelling urine of predator or mothballs or ammonia and they are available in the market.

Rodent poison is another option to do pest control. After consuming the poison Mice and rats die quickly. As they seek to drink water, they usually die outside the residential or office building keeping the building clean. And you will never get any odor coming from the dead bodies.

The Fantastic Health Benefits of Laughter

Ages ago, when someone coined the term “laughter is the best medicine”, they just knew, on an intuitive level, that something was up, that the health benefits of laughter existed in more than just an observational way.

Self-Healing Expressions

Today, with the capacity to be able to do scientific testing, we can now show what some of the health benefits of laughter actually are. For, example, when someone is “stressed out”, his or her body releases stress hormones like cortisol and nor-epinephrine, which are built into our bodies from ancient times when we had to hunt for food and fight other tribes and people for our survival. These hormones still kick in today, when we’re caught in heavy, slow-moving traffic, or the kids are screaming, or you have to meet a deadline at work, or you have an argument with someone you love, etc. However, the health benefits of laughter are such that they reduce the adverse effects of these stressful situations. There are an abundance of health benefits when you are filled with gales of laughter!

During laughter you feel so fantastic because your body/brain releases serotonin, a mood elevator/feel good hormone, which courses throughout your body. Endorphins are also released, which are the body’s natural pain killer hormones, and they are also mood elevators.

In addition, during laughter the muscles of your stomach and chest contract, resulting in the health benefits of massaging your inner organs like the intestines, liver, spleen, etc. Gulping in each breath of air during strong, boisterous laughter also benefits your heart and lung health by giving them an aerobic workout. Furthermore, blood is more quickly sent coursing through your blood vessels also giving you joyful, increased cardiovascular conditioning for improved circulation.

A study at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, showed that 40% of people who had heart disease were less likely to laugh in many situations, compared to people of the same age without heart disease. (Too much mental stress causes inflammatory conditions in the blood vessels leading to damage and a build-up of fat and cholesterol and the probability of a heart attack). Remember, some of the health benefits of laughter are the release of serotonin and endorphins, which aid in stress reduction by reducing the adverse effects of the stress hormones!

Scientific experiments have also shown that when watching funny movies, people were discovered to have released infection-fighting proteins into their saliva, which could then be measured.

In social situations the health benefits of laughter are such that they bring people together by putting everyone in a good mood and allow them to be more relaxed with each other.

With the all the many health benefits of laughter, each of us should make time, not only to exercise, eat well, and sleep well, but also to make sure that we have a good, lusty laugh every day!
