People who read books live longer – longevity mantra

According to a new study conducted by researchers at Yale University, a chapter a day may keep the coroner away, which found that reading books can help a person to live longer.

Published in the journal Social Science & Medicine on National Book Lovers Day on August, 9th, researchers wrote that compared to non-book readers, book readers experienced a 20 per cent reduction in risk of mortality over the 12 years of follow-up compared to non-book readers.

Interestingly the study found that reading books provided a greater benefit than reading newspapers or magazines.

Researchers also found a correlation between reading times and longer life spans, asserting, as little as 30 minutes a day was still beneficial in terms of survival.
