Doctors and a museum in Canada are helping sick people. They are sending patients to art galleries, instead of giving them medicine. The doctors say art helps our health. The patients have breast cancer, eating disorders and mental health problems. A doctor said: "You could come to the museum and you might feel better."

A doctor who heals people with art therapy said it is good for our physical health. Looking at art produces the same hormones in our bodies that exercise releases. A museum spokesperson said: "I am [sure] that in the 21st century, [art] will be what physical activity was for health in the 20th century."
