Be happy: live long

If you are happy you will live longer!!!! New research released on Monday suggests that a positive and happy mental framework makes a person healthy and prolongs life. These findings stem from a 15-year study of aging and Alzheimer's disease in nuns.

"It's been known for years that pathological expressions of emotion like depression or hostility can lead to illness," said David Snowdon, University of Kentucky professor of neurology and director of the Nun Study for the school's Sanders-Brown Center on Aging.

He also added, "Our theory is that negative emotional states such as anxiety, hatred and anger can have a cumulative effect on the body over time. Over decades and decades, people that turn these negative emotions on and off several times daily are hurting themselves and are more likely to fall victim to heart disease and stroke."

These findings were published in the journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

Since 1986, Snowdon has carefully tracked participants in the study, who all are members of the School Sisters of Notre Dame. All 678 agreed to annual cognitive and physical assessments, blood tests and the donation of their brains to the research team upon death.

The study has produced evidence that stroke or head trauma can increase a person's chances of suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's disease later in life. It also has shown that folic acid may help fight the ravaging affects of the disease, which robs the elderly of cognitive function before killing them.

So the next time you decide to live long, remember to stop worrying and be happy!!!
