As the cost of living keeps rising across the United States, it’s not been easy for the majority of Americans. Inflation, job layoffs, and growing debt each pose problems for the average person who just wants to make ends meet.

Some adults have moved back in with their parents; whereas others are moving in with friends and roommates. However, there are still some folks who are, so far, managing to live by themselves.

While this has long been viewed as a positive feat, a new study from the Cancer journal (an offshoot of the American Cancer Society) suggests that living without others could cause adults health problems later in life.

The study that all Americans need to be aware of

Health officials with the Cancer journal warn that working adults living solo are 1.32 times more likely to die of cancer than their counterparts who share homes with others. This conclusion comes after a study which reviewed over 300,000 adults between the ages of 18 and 64.

Apparently, the greatest risk factor of living solo is social isolation. Health officials maintain that in order to reduce the likelihood of cancer deaths in the aforementioned adults, more action to combat social isolation is necessary.
