As it became known from a source Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists from the United States (University of California), found out that all emotions, positive character, who experiences a person can have diverse effects on his health condition. On man's happiness is affected by genes, namely gene level is responsible for the pleasure derived from, for example, from eaten food that tastes good, or from drinking drink - all this is due to inflammatory processes. It is also known that the spiritual stability of the person helps to strengthen the immune system and protect against viruses.
Researchers led by Stephen Cole worked over 21 thousand genes, determining their brand of happiness, the first option, which reflects eudaimonistic sense, in this case, each individual tries to get a sense of the living being and to attain high goals, which is outside of self-satisfaction. The second option happiness is a hedonistic sense, when people bring joy pleasure of various kinds on a physical level.
The study involved 80 people. In the process, the scientists determined the quality of the happiness of each volunteer. In accounting there were all kinds of emotions, from sadness to extreme shocks.
Eventually it was revealed that if a person is nothing to be worried about and he is in a happy state, it helps the right genes and immune cells. But in this case they mean only that happiness which a man feels full feeling its purpose and meaning of life. In other words, when human activity will coincide with his purpose in life and serve him for good.
If happiness refers to the hedonistic sense, the mental state affects the genes responsible for protection against viruses and produce antibodies.
