Nah and you're not supposed to really understand it literally, it's just a saying. Obviously laughing is healthy though, because when you laugh you use a lot of muscles in your face, which you rarely use, which is "healthy" for the body. But it won't help you with aids or cancer if that's what you're asking... sadly.

Laughter reduces a stress hormone called cortisol. It also increases our tolerence of pain. Laughter increases the production of hormones like endorphines and increases the production of T-Cells which enhances the immune system. There are many positive results from a good laugh. Have you ever laughed so hard that your stomach hurt? That's because your stomach muscles just had a workout. So, have a good laugh. Watch a funny movie or read a funny book. Learn to tell a few jokes, because when you make someone else laugh, you will laugh also. Without laughter, the world would be a very sad place. LAUGH!!!

yeah right!It is absolutely right....Laughter is the best medicine, we are feeling problematic we know that it's hard to manage it.We feel so anxiety,that will more get stress.Depression, should be control and give attention. It's not good to just focus on your problems and just it of it all the time and do nothing.Because, you will be just take for granted yourself that's why sometimes even we are facing big problems we should laugh. Laughing helps to make your mood or condition well.And helps you to look younger.So that, just smile and laugh despite of pain.
