Very Religious People Are Healthier

A recent Gallup report states Americans who are very religious generally live healthier lives than those who are not religious.

These very religious Americans score higher in eating healthy, exercising regularly and smoking less than non-religious Americans. Even moderately religious Americans have been found to be healthier than non-religious Americans.

Although some are surprised by this fact, it really should not be a shock because many religious groups, especially Christians, view the body as a gift from God that one should take care of. By this estimation, it’s no big surprise that very religious Christians tend to live healthier lifestyles than those who are not religious.
