TWICE as Much Reason to Say You're Sorry

How much are twins reallyalike? Even non-identical twins, who have only half their DNA in common, are surprisingly the same. In the UK, two such twins who didn't know they were related found that they were so compatible that they got married. It's good thing that forgiveness is good for our health!

The twins were separated at birth and never knew each other as children, but found developed an "inevitable attraction" when they met for the first time as adults. Their marriage was annulled as soon as their twinship was discovered.

Holding a grudge appears to affect the cardiovascular and nervous systems. In one study, people who focused on a personal grudge had elevated blood pressure and heart rates, as well as increased muscle tension and feelings of being less in control. When asked to imagine forgiving the person who had hurt them, the participants said they felt more positive and relaxed and their physical symptoms went away. Other studies have shown that forgiveness has positive effects on psychological health, too.
