Blogging for My Health

A Scientific American article: Blogging--It's Good for You reinforces what I have said about this blog's therapeutic nature.
Research shows that it [blogging] improves memory and sleep, boosts immune cell activity and reduces viral load in AIDS patients, and even speeds healing after surgery. A study in the February issue of the Oncologist reports that cancer patients who engaged in expressive writing just before treatment felt markedly better, mentally and physically, as compared with patients who did not.
They're not sure why, but blogging (like any expressive writing) seems to be good for you.
