Canadian researchers studied 222 survivors of heart attacks. Six months after the heart attack those who were depressed were 4 times more likely to be dead than those who weren't depressed. These findings were independent of cholesterol levels, blood pressure, weight and even smoking. 

PositiveTip: People who are lonely and depressed are much more likely to get sick and die prematurely compared to those with a strong sense of love, connection, and community.
