Ohio State University scientists have examined two samples of more than 1600 obituaries looking for religion, marital status, and social activities. They found religious people lived an average of 5.64 years longer than nonbelievers. When controlled for gender and marital status the advantage was 3.82 years. Religious values, prayer and meditation, and volunteerism may all help contribute to this advantage.
