London: Want to live a long and healthy life? Look on the brighter side of life, recommends a study.For their study, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine examined more than 500 Ashkenazi Jews over the age of 95 and 700 of their children. This is because their genetic similarity makes them good candidates for gene studies.Lead researcher Nir Barzilai said: "When I started working with centenarians, I thought we`d find that they survived so long in part because they were mean and ornery."But when we assessed the personalities of 243 aged above 100, we found qualities that clearly reflect a positive attitude towards life. Most were outgoing, optimistic and easygoing. They considered laughter an important part of life. They expressed emotions openly rather than bottling them up."
