Learn How “Loneliness” Is Slowly Killing Us

Your Risk of Heart Disease, Stroke, and Dementia are on the Rise

By IGI Global on Nov 23, 2023
0 Recognizing loneliness as a public health epidemic, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy emphasizes its association with heart disease, stroke, dementia, and premature death. A recent article from Science News delves into the intricate facets of loneliness, extending beyond social disconnection to encompass detachment from animals, places, rituals, and even the weather. The study advocates for a broader definition of loneliness, incorporating non-human elements, to enhance intervention effectiveness.

Examining loneliness in Indigenous communities reveals a connection between a sense of belonging and harmony with the environment. The Yolŋu people's use of songspirals illustrates this bond, disrupted by factors like migration and climate change, leading to loneliness. Additionally, the built environment's role in addressing loneliness is explored, with architects and social scientists studying urban planning's impact on social connections. Emphasizing the significance of connections with the natural world, these relationships can mitigate loneliness, even in industrialized cultures.

Ultimately, the article advocates for a comprehensive understanding of loneliness, incorporating various factors, to inform interventions that address its profound impact on individual and public health. The book, Acceleration of the Biopsychosocial Model in Public Health (ISBN: 9781668464960) published by IGI Global, further supports this approach, integrating the biopsychosocial model into the public health sector for universal health coverage. This aligns perfectly with IGI Global's mission of Publishing Tomorrow's Research Today. It sheds light on how the biopsychosocial model is shaping the future of public health in real-time.
