I love to read! I have been a bookworm my entire life. Now I have even more reason to indulge...... A cohort study recently combined the data of 3635 people too assess the impact of various reading patterns on longevity. Readers were shown to maintain cognitive status and increase longevity by 23 months, compared to non reader. The findings also showed it did not matter what gender, level of education, health or wealth status played a part.
Ok, this wasn't a massive study but I will take anything that gives "permission" to relax, and read a book or three:)
