Lunchtime Trivia Tuesday, February 6

Q: According to this study 43% of those 60 and over had this in common.

A: They feel isolated/lonely.

The study shows that loneliness has a huge affect on health decline.

They found that 23 percent of adults who were lonely died within the six years, but only 14 percent of adults with adequate levels of companionship passed away. They also discovered that 43 percent of adults over 60 feel isolated. The conclusion: Loneliness plays a huge role in human suffering, especially in the elderly, and it can lead to medical issues like depression, cognitive decline, and even cardiovascular disease.
