Can senior dating help you live longer?Posted on: July 28, 2010 09:33:38
Those looking for over fifties dating may be interested to know that relationships could make people live longer, according to a survey from a US university.
Dating and marriage, family links and friendships can all increase lifespan, academics from Brigham Young University (BYU) discovered and those with strong social connections have 50 per cent better odds of survival.
The report found that not having much interaction with other people had the same effect as smoking 15 cigarettes a day or being an alcoholic and was twice as deadly as obesity.
Professor Julianne Holt-Lunstad said that friends and family can be a calming influence and may even help people find a reason for living.
"That sense of purpose and meaning translates to taking better care of themselves and taking fewer risks," she explained.
BYU is owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints and last year had nearly 30,000 undergraduate students.
The researchers, including Professor Holt-Lunstad, Timothy Smith and Brad Layton, looked at negative as well as positive relationships to find these survival statistics.
