Churchgoers live longer

The common believe that churchgoers live longer tuned out to be true. A new study finds people who attend religious services weekly live 1.8-3.1 years longer. Researcher speculated that the social aspect of religion could play a role in the results; religion can decrease people's level of stress in life or increase their ability to cope with stress.
