Itâ€™s the opposite of wild and crazy, but it still puts your heart at risk
The researchers crunched the data from 19 studies that looked at loneliness and isolation, and the subsequent health risks.
Each study identified what qualified as â€œlonelinessâ€ or â€œisolationâ€ in different ways. Some asked participants to rate how alone they felt in the past day or week. Other research asked participants to describe the strength and availability of their friendships.
They discovered that people who were less connected to others were 29 percent more likely to have a heart attack and 32 percent more likely to suffer a stroke than people who had more social interactions and relationships.
