Chapter 11: Health, Stress, and Coping
  1. What are some of the explanations for longer life expectancies among religious persons?
The impact of religion on health and life expectancy is better than those who don’t go to church. Weekly attendance at churches adds two to three life-years.
  2. Overall, do you feel the evidence indicating that religious involvement increases health and longevity are strong?
I don’t, just because you believe in religion doesn’t necessarily mean you live longer in life.
  3. What might some alternative explanations for the data be?
Just cause you believe in a god, doesn’t really mean he’ll make you live longer. I think living a healthy lifestyle is what makes you live longer.
