For the study, a team of researchers analyzed data from 8,577 people from the Copenhagen City Heart Study which began in 1975 and included adults whose age was from 20 to 93. The participants were followed for 25 years.

Raising your heart rate is important, but it looks like connecting with other people is, too.”
