Loneiless can actually shorten your lifespan!
A new study has found that people with heart disease who live by themselves tend not to live as long as people who cohabitate.
The reasons why aren't very clear but they think it could be the limited access to medicine.
"Patients living alone may have more difficulty getting their medications refilled and taking them regularly. They also don't have anyone at home to call the doctor's office or emergency room if they are not looking well."
Earlier studies have also linked isolation to increased heart attack risk and weakened immune systems.
So whats the trick to fix this problem?
Find another lonely person and move in with them!
Or at least get a robot butler to help you out and keep you company.
