Dr. Joseph Mercola says:
Would you lie less if you knew that it would help you be healthier? A new study shows that individuals who were “more honest” had significantly better health.
And what if we realized that lying will keep us from going to heaven too?

– Rev. 21:7 & 8

Throughout the study, subjects in the group instructed not to lie reported better health, the researchers found. When participants that group told three fewer white lies than they did in previous weeks, for example, they reported four fewer mental health complaints (such as stress or sadness) and about three fewer physical health complaints (like sore throats and headaches). The pattern was also seen for major lies, the researchers found. …
“Recent evidence indicates that Americans average about 11 lies per week. We wanted to find out if living more honestly can actually cause better health,” study author Dr. Anita E. Kelly, professor of psychology at the University of Notre Dame….
The participants in the no-lie group said they realized they could easily tell the truth about their daily accomplishments rather than exaggerate, and others said they learned to stop making false excuses for being late or not completing tasks. Experts agree these changes could lead to health improvements.
“When you find that you don’t lie, you have less stress,” Dr. Linda Stroh, a professor of organizational behavior at Loyola University in Chicago….
