The Tangled Web of Illness & Deceit
New research has purported that the more lies one tells, the less healthy they are. I’m sure that many of us would say, why of course. However, keeping that in mind take a look at the little “white lies” we tell everyday. Do those count towards our health?
The American Psychological Association study, reported on by CBS Denver, shows that telling lies releases stress hormones. Therefore, liars had more more illness, more anxiety, more depression, more exhaustion, and more headaches.
A very interesting fact was that those who told the biggest lies had the most health complaints. The study also noted that the average person tells 11 lies per week. Other studies =, which have included “white lies” have quoted a higher daily rate of lying. Perhaps, this studies statistic does not take into account our “white lies”.
