A Dutch study claims that optimistic people tend to live longer. The results from the study group found that the highest level of optimism was associated with a 30% death rate whereas the highest rate of pessimism was associated with a 57% death rate. Pessimism appeared to cause an increased risk of heart attack, stroke and other cardiovascular disease. Poor emotional health has the potential to weaken the immune system and may also be associated with less interest in maintaining good health.
