Concert going is good for your health

An article in today's New York Times says that research backs up the claim that going to classical music concerts benefits your health. Here's a great quote from the second paragraph of this report:
“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.”

So, do some good for yourself and attend a concert ASAP!
