LIVE LONGER – BY BE­ING A VOL­UN­TEER!

National Enquirer - - HEALTH WATCH -

HERE’S another thing you can do to live longer — do vol­un­teer work! New re­search pub­lished in the Amer­i­can Jour­nal of Preven­tive Medicine has found that vol­un­teer­ing around two hours a week slashed death rates among the el­derly AND led to a more phys­i­cally ac­tive life­style and a hap­pier out­look. “Hu­mans are so­cial crea­tures by na­ture,” ex­plained be­hav­ioral sci­en­tist and lead in­ves­ti­ga­tor Eric Kim. “Per­haps this is why our minds and bod­ies are re­warded when we give to others.”
