"Researchers say giving leads to a healthier, happier life"

Wealth managers hesitate to raise the issue of philanthropy with their clients. At least that's what I hear at meetings of the Boston Security Analysts Society.

But they could be doing their clients a disservice, according to "Researchers say giving leads to a healthier, happier life," a recent article in the Christian Science Monitor.

The article focuses on research by Dr. Stephen Post of Case Western Reserve University, co-author of a new book, Why Good Things Happen to Good People.

"As head of the Institute for Research on Unlimited Love (IRUL), at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, he has sponsored more than 50 studies by scientists from 54 major universities. In a wide range of disciplines – from public health to human development to neuroscience, sociology, and evolutionary biology – the studies have demonstrated that love and caring expressed in doing good for others lead people to have healthier, happier, and even longer lives."
