Your mom was right (as usual): It's good for your health to give her a phone call. - 

This final note today.

Call your mom. No, seriously. Call your mom -- it's good for you.

The Wired Science blog from Wired magazine reports on a study today that shows when people are stressed, talking to mom made 'em feel better -- physiologically. Stress hormones dropped, comfort hormones rose. Contact has to be on the phone or in person. Texting doesn't do a thing for you.

Marketplace angle? None. Just a plug for moms everywhere.
