It depends: Yes healthy people smile more than sick people. Take the average person, they will smile more on a usual day when they are well than on an average day when they are sick. However, some people with very serious illness can look on the bright side and say I am glad to still be alive and able to do or see whatever they look forward too. My daughter's wedding or someting else.
