Federally-funded study links religious practice, optimism
Catholic World News - November 11, 2011
A study funded by the US National Institutes of Health has found that women who attend religious services regularly are 56% more likely to be optimistic and 22% less likely to be depressed than those who do not. Some 93,000 women took part in the study, which began in 1991.
