It's a quicker killer than obesity

It’s one thing to feel a little lonely on a Friday night because all of your friends are busy and it’s another when you feel like you have very few relationships or connections with other people so you feel chronically without companionship. That kind of deep loneliness can scar you so badly that colds feel more severe, you can’t remember much of your life as you age, or your heart winds up in such bad shape that it weakens. Seriously.

Researchers are imploring people across the world to form bonds with others so that they can stave off an early death which loneliness may be leading them to.
