The Faith Factor
Compared with non-religious people, those people with a religious commitment consistently report better health and well-being, reduced anxiety and depression, reduced blood pressure, improved quality of life in cancer and heart disease patients, reduced drug use, greater marital satisfaction, and greater self esteem.
Religion is more closely related to health than many think. Religion tends directly to promote health, to lengthen life, ... and to heighten our enjoyment of all of its blessings.
Feed your faith at your church.
