Most, if not all believers go to church in order to make heaven after they die and leave this earth, but a recent study by a professor of epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Tyler J. VanderWeele, attending church regularly will contribute to living a longer and fulfilling life.
He revealed adhering to a supreme deity contributes to living a healthier life that is free of guilt, anxiety or intolerance or intolerance.
“Our study suggests that for health, the benefits outweigh the potential negative effects such as guilt, anxiety or intolerance,” VanderWeele said.
His research derived its data from a focus group made up of 75,000 female nurses based in the United States.
The professor’s findings indicate that women who frequented church were at a 33% lower risk of kicking the bucket.
VanderWeele also discovered religion and church-going played a major role in canceling out cases of depression or addiction to smoking.
Women who went to church regularly were described as more optimistic and had a great sense of self-discipline.
