The results indicated that socially isolated people appeared to be biologically older than their actual chronological age.

The IA-ECG revealed that loneliness is associated with faster aging. Volunteers who had a more active social life in research had a lower aging rate than those who declared having a more isolated social life. Participants responded to a questionnaire that addressed different areas of social interaction.

The study also revealed a difference between races, where non-white participants showed greater biological aging compared to whites. Those with lower Social Network Index scores faced a higher risk of death.

Expert recommendation

One of the scientists in this Mayo Clinic research, cardiologist Amir Lerman, emphasized in an interview the importance of combating social isolation.

He states that not having a social life critically affects health, but he knows that people can change their behaviors, seeking more social interaction and practicing regular exercise. Therefore, investing in social connections can be an effective strategy for delaying aging and promoting overall health. Not only improving life expectancy, but also reducing the risk of cardiological diseases, stroke and dementia.
