The British Heart Foundation noted: “The key message is to seek health from your doctor if you are concerned about your mood, or that of a loved one.

“Depression is common in the general population and even more so in people with physical health concerns.”

It is worth mentioning that while the link between pessimism seems to be related to high levels of other risk factors for heart attack, there may be other components involved.

The BHF added: “When pessimism was associated with symptoms of depression, there was a significant increase in the further serious cardiac events (such as fatal heart attack, cardiac surgery, or readmission with a heart attack) compared to those with an optimistic attitude.
