Writing in the Harvard Business Review in 2017 on work and loneliness, physician and former U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy noted,
“During my years caring for patients, the most common pathology I saw was not heart disease or diabetes; it was loneliness.”
Noting that rates of loneliness in the United States have doubled since the 1980s, Murthy called the condition “a growing health epidemic”.
According to the research of Julianne Holt-Lunstad, Professor of Psychology & Neuroscience at Brigham Young University, and her colleagues,
the heightened risk of mortality from loneliness equals that of smoking 15 cigarettes per day or being an alcoholic and exceeds the health risks associated with obesity.
