Review: Mindfulness Meditation May Help Ease Anxiety, Depression, Pain.

The Los Angeles Times (1/7, MacVean) “Science Now” blog reports that according to a review (1/7) published online Jan. 6 in JAMA Internal Medicine, “mindfulness meditation can help ease anxiety, depression and pain.” The review did not find much evidence, however, that “meditation helped other conditions including substance abuse or sleep and attention problems.”

The Wall Street Journal (1/7, D2, Gellman, Subscription Publication) reports that researchers arrived at those conclusions after examining data from 47 randomized clinical studies involving more than 3,500 participants.
