Music Heals

The New York Times writes about the healing powers of music:

"Listening to finer music and attending concerts on a consistent basis makes your real age about four years younger," Dr. Michael F. Roizen – the chief wellness officer of the Wellness Institute at the Cleveland Clinic, said recently. "Whether that's due to stress relief or other properties, we see decreases in all-cause mortality, reflecting slower aging of arteries as well as cancer-related and environmental factors. Attending sports events like soccer or football offers none of these benefits."

    Correlation does not equal causation. I would think the two populations (classical music lovers, sports fans) just might be different. Dr. Roizen should know that.

    If music does heal, it’s good to see you think Rachmaninoff is especially healing.
