Twins Live Longer than the Rest of Us

A new study shows that twins live longer than other people.

“There is benefit to having someone who is socially close to you who is looking out for you. They may provide material or emotional support that lead to better longevity outcomes,”

-David Sharrow, Researcher at the University of Washington.

These benefits could go beyond twins if “we […] choose to invest in social bonds as a way to promote health and longevity,” Sharrow said.
