he is Woman and want to live beyond 90? A study conducted by researchers at Harvard University in the United States, published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, which was based on 26 years of research, revealed that women who are more optimistic are more likely to live longer.
From data on nearly 160,000 females between the ages of 50 and 79, the researchers concluded that optimistic women had a 5.4% longer life expectancy. In addition, they are 10% more likely to live past the age of 90.
But this is not the first investigation to link optimism with age. A 2019 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine and involving more than 33,000 women, reports that optimists seemed to live 23% longer.
That same year, another study found that optimism was associated with an 11% and 15% longer life expectancy in men and women, respectively. According to the research, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, which involved 1,429 males and 69,744 females, optimists were more likely to live to 85 years or more.
