A museum in Canada is working with doctors to help sick people. Doctors will send patients to art galleries, instead of giving them medicine. The doctors believe art benefits our health. The patients include people with breast cancer, eating disorders, epilepsy and mental health problems. A spokesperson said: "We saw that the museum was good for people....You could come to the museum and you might feel better."

A doctor who helps to heal people with art therapy spoke about its benefits. She said: "There's...scientific proof that art therapy is good for your physical health." Looking at art increases the same kinds of hormones in our bodies that are released when we exercise. The museum's director-general said: "I am convinced that in the 21st century, [art] will be what physical activity was for health in the 20th century."
