The results found that 43.2 percent of participants admitted to feeling lonely and the risk of premature death among them increased by 22.8 percent compared to those who do not feel lonely at only 14.2 percent.
In addition 24.8 percent of participants who feel lonely also decreased physical and psychic abilities in performing everyday activities, compared to 12.5 percent of those who feel cared for. While 40.8 percent of them have trouble down the ladder compared to 14.2 percent of parents who feel happy.
