People who attended religious services once a week or more were 49 percent less likely to have elevated IL-6 levels than were nonattenders.
The investigation, reported in the October 1997 issue of the International Journal of Psychiatry in Medicine, involved 1,718 men and women over sixty-five, and reported that those who attended services at least once a week were about half as likely as nonattenders to have high blood levels of interleukin-6, a protein that regulates immune and inflammatory responses.
"We are in part reacting to what we hear, are hearing, have heard from audience members and from nonattenders," Hanson said.
