Optimism, Laugher May Bring Long Life

The Longevity Genes Project, launched by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City suggests a factor in living a long life may in fact be a positive disposition.  The study included participants 95 years or older of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, 2/3rds of which were women.  This allowed the team of researchers to study personality comparisons among a genetically similar group.  The study found that participants were for the most part relaxed, friendly and upbeat about life.
