According to Lisa Berman, one of the authors of the study, published in the July 2008 edition of the American Journal of Public Health, “social participation and integration have profound effects on the health and well-being of people during their lifetimes. We know from previous studies that people with many social ties have lower mortality rates. We now have mounting evidence that strong social networks can help to prevent declines in memory.”
