Happy moments 'protect the heart'

Every moment of happiness counts when it comes to protecting your heart, researchers have said.

They found that even when happier people experienced stress, they had low levels of a chemical which increases the risk of heart disease.

The research is published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
