Researchers at Brigham Young University reported that a meta-analysis of 70 studies including more than 3.4 million people from 1980 to 2014 found that people who are socially isolated and living alone had a 30% higher mortality rate than those with regular social contact. The effect was larger for younger people than those over 65. (In brief. Monitor on Psychology, 2015, 46(5), p. 2) http://www.finebergpsychotherapy.com
