Study:Attending Church Helps One Live Longer; Non-Attendants More Likely to Die Prematurely

A new study has found that church attendance is good for your health, as those who attend services experience less stress and enjoy longer lives, the Christian Headlines website reports today (June 22, 2017).

Vanderbilt University professor and Baptist minister Marino Bruce spearheaded the study, alongside Keith Norris, a professor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

Bruce said, "We found in our study that attending church is actually good for your health, particularly for those who are between the ages of 40 and 65."

He added, "For those who did not attend church at all, they were twice as likely to die prematurely than those who attended church at some point over the last year."
