Writing reduces your cholesterol

Does it? If that's the case, my cholesterol must be in minus figures.

Oh, wait. You have to be writing affectionately. Ah, now that's obviously where I'm falling down.

Scientists say people who devote 20 minutes now and again to writing affectionate words about their loved ones can significantly lower their cholesterol within 25 days. Presumably their control group was spending a much more enjoyable 20 minutes stuffing their faces with pastries.
