NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Having faith in God and a sense of peace, as well as showing compassion toward others, may help people with AIDS to live longer, a team of Florida researchers reports.
"There are many good reasons for trying to connect with the sacred," lead researcher Dr. Gail Ironson, a psychologist at the University of Miami, told Reuters Health. "Our research shows that it's related to both long survival and less distress."
