Religion Is a Buffer against Suicide for Women
According to a recent study, women who attend religious services on a regular basis may have a lower risk of suicide compared to those who don’t.
U.S. researchers reviewed data on about 90,000 women that were enrolled in the Nurses’ Health Study from 1996 to 2010. 36 suicides happened during this time.
The study found that nearly 19% of women in the study attended religious services more than once a week; about 41% attended once a week; around 16% attended services less than once a week, and nearly 24% never attended religious services.
According to the study, women who attended religious services at least once a week had 5 times lower risk of suicide that those who never attended services. Nevertheless, the study shows only an association and not a cause-and-effect relationship.
