I have to admit, I always find it mildly amusing when science manages to catch up with the knowledge of the rest of us. *Chuckle* This is an interesting study which includes information that is gender specific. I like that it notes that while women gain mental health benefits, men also gain physical health. I suspect that as men interact with those who care with them (rather than hiding in their caves as they generally do), they become more interested in their own health. This leads to much better outcomes all over. Of course, that's just my opinion. Enjoy!
