Meditation and research

I've shared with you before on this blog about recent research regarding the benefits of meditation. Today I just read a short article that includes the following statment:
In fact, the results of more than 1,000 peer-reviewed articles on meditation suggest that regular practice of meditation is associated with "significant relief from a variety of stress related physical and mental problems, a stronger immune system, longer life, increased energy and positive changes in brain function."
That's a very large number for peer-reviewed material.

If you're not sure what it means for an article to be peer-reviewed, please go here.

The little article is called "Master the Art of Meditation" and it's from a website I just discovered called To Your Health.
