Gates vs. Allen: How Important Is the Wingman?

中英對照讀新聞/Laughing "better than latest technology for leg ulcers" 大笑對腳部潰瘍的療效優於最新科技
◎國際新聞中心
A good old belly laugh can help heal leg ulcers, experts say. The Leeds University team said good nursing and the occasional laugh was a better way to get the body healing than using the latest technology.
專家說,捧腹大笑有助治療腳部潰瘍。里茲大學團隊說,好的照顧與偶爾大笑,對身體復元的效果比使用最新科技好。
Hospitals and health clinics are increasingly using low-dose ultrasound for leg ulcers. But the five-year study of 337 patients found it did nothing to speed up recovery, the British Medical Journal reported.
醫院與健康診所越來越常使用低劑量的超音波來治療腳部潰瘍,但是《英國醫學期刊》報導,這份針對337名病患的5年研究發現,超音波對加速復元毫無用處。
Instead, lead researcher Professor Andrea Nelson said:"The best way to do that is with compression bandages and support stocking coupled with advice on diet and exercise. Believe it or not, having a really hearty chuckle can help too. This is because laughing gets the diaphragm moving and this plays a vital part in moving blood around the body."
領導研究者尼爾森教授說:「最好的方式就是加壓繃帶以及輔助襪,加上飲食與運動建議。信不信由你,盡情地呵呵笑也有幫助,這是因為大笑會讓橫隔膜移動,這對讓血液在體內流動扮演要角。」
During the study, the team concentrated on patients with hard-to-heal ulcers that had not cleared up after six months or longer. They found that adding ultrasound to the standard approach to care -dressings and compression therapy- made no difference to the speed of healing or the chance of ulcers coming back.
在這份研究中,團隊專注在潰瘍很難好、6個月以上都未痊癒的病患,他們發現,在包紮與加壓療法等標準照顧方式之外增加超音波,不會改變癒合速度或潰瘍復發機率。


In the former Soviet Union, people used to joke that Adam and Eve must have been Soviets. "They lived naked, shared an apple and thought they were living in paradise." The chuckle can be found in "Sekai no Joku, Keiku-shu" (A collection of jokes and aphorism of the world), published by Jiyukokuminsha.
