Hello -- there is some evidence that sadness/depression may be linked directly to heart disease or coronary events, and that is probably due to some adverse effect on cholesterol levels at least in part. However, the evidence for this is somewhat shake on paper, although it is fairly widely believed to be correct.
I hope this helps answer your question.
