The authors have noticed that there is an error in Table 2. The units are shown as kJ min−1 but the values presented are in kcal min−1. The revised table is shown below.
The last statement in Abstract should read:
Conclusion: Genuine voiced laughter causes a 10–20% increase in EE and HR above resting values, which means that 10–15 minutes of laughter per day could increase total EE by 10–40 kJ (2–10 kcal).
The authors would like to apologise for their error.
