Happiness Promotes Health

In a recent presentation, US Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy said, “If there was a factor in your life that could reduce your risk of having a heart attack or a stroke, that could increase your chances of living longer, and would make your children less likely to engage in crime or use drugs, and that would even increase your success with losing weight, what would that factor be?  It turns out, it would be happiness.”
