Religious people might live longer - short science articles

Psychologists studied more than 1000 obituaries and were surprised to discover that those with religious affiliations lived at 5.64 years longer than those individuals without any religious ties. This advantage shrunk to 3.82 years when gender and marital statuses were considered. They further studied if volunteering and social opportunities which are available to people with religious affiliations could be the reason for this longevity but found that these two parameters only accounted for less than 1-year increase in longevity.
