On 9 December 2016 Reuters reported:
Women who have a sunny outlook on life may live longer . . . a recent study suggests. Researchers analyzed data collected over eight years on about 70,000 women and found that the most optimistic people were significantly less likely to die from cancer, heart disease, stroke, respiratory disease, or infections during the study period than the least optimistic.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of health, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
'Optimism may also have a direct impact on our biological functioning,' said one of the study's lead authors, Kaitlin Hagan, a public health researcher at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard University in Boston. 'Other studies have shown that higher optimism is linked with lower inflammation, healthier lipid levels, and higher antioxidants.'
While other studies have linked optimism with reduced risk of early death from cardiovascular problems, this was the first to find a link between optimism and reduced risk from other major causes, the study authors note.
