For centuries there has been some type of debate between the scientific and religious communities. While many people in the medical and science field believe that many medical problems are solved with science and study, those that are of faith may believe that a higher power controls much of our lives and makes a lot decisions for us. While these two communities may not always agree, it appears that the two sides may be close to agreement on at least one particular issue.
Doing good deeds for other people and being generous has always been a goal for many people in the religious community. While they believe that it is simply good to do good for others, the added benefit is that it could actually result in better karma and make you feel better as well. While this has been a long-held belief by the religious community, it now appears that it could have also been confirmed by scientists as well.
During a recent study, world renowned neuroscientist Jorge Moll completed a study that showed the impact of doing good deed and how it can affect the human body. The Dr. Jorge Moll was able to conclude that when someone does a good deed for another party, it released endorphins in the brain that can help anyone to feel better about themselves. This can then lead to reduced levels of stress and depression, each of which would have an immediate health benefit as well.
While these conclusions were very beneficial and support the beliefs of others that are of faith, it is not the first time a similar study has been completed. Several years prior, a few different studies in the United States came to a similar conclusion like Jorge Moll’s valuable test results. One of these studies even tested people that had brain injuries in the past. Those that had an issue with a certain area of the brain tended to show less remorse and sympathy for other people. This helps to show that guilt and remorse are actually controlled by a specific part of the brain.
