New Harvard Study Concludes Bleeding-Heart Liberals Beat Conservatives In Longevity All Day Long

http://www.addictinginfo.org/2015/01/29/new-harvard-study-concludes-bleeding-heart-liberals-beat-conservatives-in-longevity-all-day-long/

According to a new study, even with their ever-bleeding hearts, liberals are more likely to outlive conservatives in the United States.

Published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health, the recent study’s results were actually quite a surprise considering past research. Formerly, it was believed conservatives in several other countries, including that unique breed of conservatives, the American Republican, were happier and healthier people who tended to live longer than their political rivals, those dreadful liberals.

According to University of Nevada-Reno community health researcher Roman Pabayo, previous American studies, however, failed to separate political ideology from party membership. Nor did prior studies compare death rates of those at similar education and income levels.

It turns out, those who identified as conservatives and moderates were more likely to have died by the next follow-up in the research by 6 percent over liberals who basically portrayed similar traits in their lives, such as age, income, and sex.

1. Makes sense to me. Liberals are less fearful and angry than conservatives.

That means fewer stress hormones circulating through your body, wearing it out.

2. I was already planning to live forever.

So this just tells me that I'm going to make it. I may be facing the big 5-7, but there's still a lot of life in this old girl. I'm only 30 in my head, anyway.
