Researchers from La Sierra University in Riverside, California have published a report on longevity that disproves many old beliefs about how to live longer. The 20 year study of over 1500 people found men in long term marriages outlived bachelors and divorced men, but marriage had no effect on the lifespan of women.
- If divorced men die younger… Larry King should have been dead 20 years ago.
- Marriage has no effect on the lifespan of women… unless, of course, you’re married to OJ Simpson.
The study also revealed that contrary to popular belief, happy, optimistic people die younger than pessimists. Researchers believe it may be because optimists are more likely to take risks that put their lives in danger.
- So I think it’s safe to say that both Charlie Sheen and Linsday Lohan are optimists!
- Remember… A smile is just a frown turned upside down!
