Singing increases life expectancy and saves from cancer

Swedish scientists At the University of Gothenburg have found that choral singing prolongs life. Singing along with yoga helps to control the state of the body and improve the work of the heart. Proper singing, especially choral singing, stabilizes the cardiovascular system, RBC reports.

Based on the experiments, it was found that the melody and rhythm of music directly affect the heart of the singer. That is, to get in tune with the music, the heart rate accelerates or slows down, writes the British newspaper Express. When singing in the choir, synchronization occurs between the participants, which leads to a calming effect, allowing the body to rest both mentally and physically.

“Singing regulates the activity of the so – called vagus nerve, which is responsible for emotionality and communication skills, and also affects our vocal timbre,” says Bjorn Wickhoff, a scientist at the University of Gothenburg. This nerve, according to the scientist, connects the heart rate, pulse, breathing and singing.

In addition, scientists from Harvard and Yale conducted their research, which showed that in Connecticut (a city where most of the population sings in the choir), life expectancy is one of the highest. People with cancer are also advised to sing. According To the University of Cardiff (UK), singing patients have a better chance of recovery, according to the portal “Medvesti”.
