Childless People Die Sooner, Study Says
Date:12/5/2012

WEDNESDAY, Dec. 5 (HealthDay News) -- A new study of couples treated for infertility found a significantly higher death rate among couples who remained childless and lower odds of psychiatric illness among those who adopt.

Researchers in Denmark found death rates were two to four times higher among childless couples, even after taking age, education, income and other health problems into account. Adoption increased longevity and cut the rate of mental illness in half, they found.

The study found that early death rates were cut in half among women who adopted a child. Death rates also were twice as high for childless men as for those who became fathers through adoption.

Although rates of mental illness were similar among biological parents and the chil
