“Love will keep us (and your telomeres) together”

In this case-control study, they found a trend towards longer telomeres in people who practiced loving kindness meditation. They found that the “p-value” was 0.083 for loving kindness meditation so in other words, there was only an 8% chance it was random.

But for women, there was only a 7 in 1,000 chance of this being random.

So for any men out there who may be wondering if it is worth it to go through the rigamarole of demonstrating your love on this ridiculous, commercialized holiday, there is now scientific evidence for the adage: “Happy wife, happy life.”
