Optimists Have Less Risk of Heart Failure
People who are optimistic also have a lower risk of heart failure, according to another study led by Eric Kim, MS. Using the Health and Retirement Study, a nationally representative study of U.S. adults, Kim and his colleagues reviewed data from 6,808 participants over a 4-year period. Higher levels of optimism were associated with lower risk of heart failure; in the people who were most optimistic, the risk was 73% lower than it was in those who were least optimistic.
