The Old Lady spotted a post about this on a blog and mentioned it to me, so I thought I'd check it out. It does sound attractive, stare at large breasts for 10 minutes to equal 30 minutes of exercise. (I guess you'd have to double the time with small breasts.) I'm all for healthy things and this sounded right up my alley!!
"According to the New England Journal of Medicine, "Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female is roughly equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out" declared gerontologist Dr. Karen Weatherby."
Dr. Weatherby and fellow researchers at three hospitals in Frankfurt, Germany, reached the startling conclusion after comparing the health of 200 male outpatients - half of whom were instructed to look at busty females daily, the other half told to refrain from doing so. The study revealed that after five years, the chest-watchers had lower blood pressure, slower resting pulse rates and fewer instances of coronary artery disease.
"Sexual excitement gets the heart pumping and improves blood circulation," explains Dr. Weatherby. "There's no question: Gazing at breasts makes men healthier." "Our study indicates that engaging in this activity a few minutes daily cuts the risk of stroke and heart attack in half. We believe that by doing so consistently, the average man can extend his life four to five years."
The above has been confirmed to be an Urban Legend. Damn!!!!!!!!!!! Found several references to this when I googled "Staring at breasts reduces heart disease", but upon further checking found out it is an urban legend and Snopes.com says it is false. According to Snopes.com this has never appeared in the "New England Journal of Medicine" but a similar article has appeared twice in "Weekly World News" in May 1997 and Mar. 2000. We all know what a fountain of information that is, isn't that where Faux Noise gets their stories from???????
I was going to put up a picture to illustrate what kind of exercise this would be, but what's the point if it's not true???
