People Who Volunteer Live Longer, Study Suggests

People whoِ volunteer forِ selfless reasons, suchِ asِ helping others, live longer thanِ those whoِ don’tِ lend a helping hand, a newِ study shows.
This couldِ mean thatِ people whoِ volunteer withِ otherِ people asِ their main motivation mayِ beِ buffered fromِ potential stressors associatedِ with volunteering, suchِ asِ time constraints andِ lack ofِ pay, study researcher Sara Konrath ofِ the University ofِ Michigan saidِ inِ a statement.
In 2004, theِ participants reported howِ often theyِ hadِ volunteered withinِ theِ pastِ 10 years.
