Longevinarian Alert: Stick Your Head In A Book

Book readers will live longer than those individuals who read newspapers or magazines.  In a study of unique interest, book readers were found to have a 20% reduction in risk for mortality over a 12-year period compared to non-book readers.  This conclusion was drawn after adjustments for age, sex, race, education, wealth and marital status.  Book readers had a 23-month survival advantage in this study of 3635 retirees.  [Social Science Medicine July 18, 2016]
