Cover Story

The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York recently studied the effects of hearing music on 69 adult cancer patients. Remarkably, those who received music therapy reported a 37 percent drop in mood disturbance and 28 percent less anxiety than the other patients.

“Researchers know music can affect brainwaves, brain circulation and stress hormones,” says ABC News’ consumer medical reporter, Dean Edell. “Some studies have found music therapy can lower heart rate, blood pressure and breathing rate.”
