Botox Makes You Happy?
Ever wish there was a shot to cure sadness? Ever guess that shot was Botox? A new study suggests that freezing the muscles that create frowns (like the infamous jolt of Botulism) can actually stop the sad emotions that accompany the expression. A study of 40 people showed that Botox-injected plastic surgery patients took longer to process sad and unhappy situations than people without frozen foreheads, but could still process happy emotions just as quickly. Weird, huh? [Newsweek]
