Keepin; the Faith

People - or at least women - who frequent churches, synagogues, mosque, and the like might live longer. For 20 years, researchers
followed more than 74,000 women who started out without
heart disease or cancer. Those who attended religious
services more than once a week were 33% less likely to die for
any reason during the study period than women who never 
attended. What do the faithful have going for them? Researchers
found lower rates of smoking and depression and higher rates 
of social support and optimism.
