The Prescription Is Laughter

JAMA Intern Med. 2015;175(5):783. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2014.574

Although we take seriously the statement, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”1 (and the importance of a good parachute), these articles launch our first April Fool’s issue. At least once per year, and more is likely better (but needs to be tested), laughter is the best medicine. We look forward to continued editorial chuckles as you send us scientifically rigorous and humorous content that will educate and entertain us all, in time for our next April Fool’s issue.
