In an interesting new meta-analysis encompassing 15-studies involving over 229,000 participants, researchers found that increased patient optimism was associated with lower risk of heart attack and death. The study concluded: "The findings suggest that optimism is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality. Future studies should seek to better define the biobehavioral mechanisms underlying this association and evaluate the potential benefit of interventions designed to promote optimism or reduce pessimism."
