    Easy.. because it alleviates stress... stress causes release of adrenaline, increases heart rate, causes the heart muscle to get less oxygen (because it pumps harder), lack of oxygen leads to death of the heart muscles, which leads to heart attack..... when the heart relaxes more, it gives time for the heart muscle to become well-oxygenated.. hence, more optimism = less heart attack!

    That adrenaline also irritates the vascular walls and those irritated sites attract plaque!

    Stress is a MAJOR cause of coronary arterial disease.. I'm a walking(thankfully) example!

    And people wonder why I bought in the Keys recently!icon_wink.gif

    I was gonna read the article but it is probably just full of lies anyway.

    Don't ever believe anything science says - it's all lies designed to take your money.

    It's part of a worldwide conspiracy.

    The end is near anyway.

    DAMN - these shooting pains in my left arm are soooo distracting....
