Benefits of Deep Breathing

Some species of turtles could live 200 years and breathe once every two minutes and half, according to some scientists. There is no scientific proof on longevity associated with its slow breathing, but slow and deep breathing has many benefits for human health. As early as 1970s, Harvard researcher Herbert Benson found breathing can change the expression of genes. Researches today show the benefit of slow breathing in improving overall health.
