Social Isolation Leads to Health Issues and Risk of Premature Death

Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania found why social isolation may lead to health issues and a shorter lifespan.social isolation

The scientists studied the effects of social isolation on fruit flies. They noticed that molecule markers of UPR (unfolded protein response) activation were at higher levels in flies that were kept separately in vials if compared to the flies of the same age kept in groups.

Senior author of the study Nirinjini Naidoo, Ph.D., explains: “When you keep animals isolated, it basically induces a disturbance of sleep, which then gives rise to a cellular stress that in turn triggers the UPR.”
