According to a report by Mother Nature Network, a new study suggests that isolation and loneliness in the United States has become a serious health issue that could reach epidemic proportions. At the American Psychological Association convention, researchers presented their findings that suggest the impact of loneliness and social isolation has been growing and will continue to grow. A study by the AARP found that 42 million adults over the age of 45 in the US are estimated to suffer from chronic loneliness. The lead author of the study, Julianne Holt-Lunstad, said, "There is robust evidence that social isolation and loneliness significantly increase risk for premature mortality, and the magnitude of the risk exceeds that of many leading health indicators."
