Faith may help you heal faster, live longer

ITALY (KWWL) -- A new study suggests faith in a higher power may improve the survival rates of liver transplant patients.

Italian researchers studied 179 liver transplant patients who completed a questionnaire on their religious beliefs and practices.

Those who professed a strong faith and trust in god had better post-surgery survival, and even prolonged their life span, compared to those with a weaker religious connection.

The findings were the same no matter what religion the patient practiced.
