CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Religious services aren't just good for your soul, they can be good for your health, too.
A new study by the American Medical Association found people who attend church more often, stay alive longer.
People in the study who went to religious services more than once a week were 33 percent less likely to die, compared to those who never attended services.
Those who went to church once a week saw their odds of dying go down 26 percent.
The reason? Researchers say people who attended services were more likely to quit smoking, give up drinking, and overcome depression.
