A recent study found out that the love of a mother can be measured … by the blood of a child.
German researchers made a long-term study showing how blood of a child changes with time depending on love, affection and care a child gets. The scientists have been following 279 boys and girls starting from the age of 3 up to 19. Throughout this period they have been visiting the families and taking notes of the way the children have been treated. At the same time the blood tests have been done accordingly.
The stunning result of a study shows that children who experienced lack of love, affection and empathy are lacking 2 important substances in their blood, and these are the substances that protect from stock and heart attack. The children who enjoyed a loving care of their parents has a sufficient amount of these important substances.

Isn’t it amazing? This information is highly important because unfrotunately todays statistics shows that heart attack and strock are getting “younger”: If earlier these disesases have been typical for adults, nowadays more and more children and teenagers are aslo affected by them.
I also like the fact how this study reflects the yoga knowledge about the connection of parential love to the heart (the strength of the heart chakra depens of the amount of love and security feeling a one recieved as a child).
