Health and friendship

The more friends we have the better our health and Tara Parker Pope writes about it well in her article in the nyt.
What Are Friends for? A Longer Life
It seems that the more friends we have the longer we live and the better our health outcomes. I am convinced. My friend Allison has cancer for the 4th time and yesterday our group of eight, met, cried, cooked and laughed. This appears to be the best medicine we could offer and ParkerPope points to research to support my claims.
Friends are better than family it seems and maybe because you can reinvent yourself ignoring childish flaws and foibles.
So friends, thanks you add time to my life.
