“People who have a good peer support system at work may live longer than people who don’t have such a support system,” says a 20-year workplace research project published by the American Psychological Association. “This effect of peer social support on the risk of mortality was most pronounced among those between the ages of 38 and 43. Yet similar support from workers’ supervisors had no effect on mortality,” the study said; it appeared in the May issue of “Health Psychology.”
