Housecall for Health

Being a pessimist may not all be a downer.  New research suggests a half-empty glass may last longer than a half-full one.

FOX's Colleen Cappon explains in today's "Housecall for Health":

Viewing the glass as half-empty may help you live longer.  A large study out of Germany finds that pessimists tend to live longer, healthier lives.

The researchers say having pessimism about the future may encourage people to live more carefully, paying more attention to health & safety precautions, while being overly optimistic showed a great risk of disability and death from living too fearlessly.
