On Church Attendance and Long Life
by Greg Linscott
There are many things you can do to increase your life expectancy: exercise, eat well, take your medication and … go to church.
A new study finds people who attend religious services weekly live longer. Specifically, the research looked at how many years are added to life expectancy based on:
* Regular physical exercise: 3.0-to-5.1 years
* Proven therapeutic regimens: 2.1-to-3.7 years
* Regular religious attendance: 1.8-to-3.1 years
Well, there you go, then!
