  1. Fulltext. Does religious observance promote health ? Mortality in secular vs religious Kibbutzim in Israel.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    This study assessed the association of Jewish religious observance with mortality by comparing religious and secular kibbutzim.

    These collectivities are highly similar in social structure and economic function and are cohesive and supportive communities.

    Methods

    In a 16-year (1970 through 1985) historical prospective study of mortality in 11 religious and 11 matched secular kibbutzim in Israel, 268 deaths occured among 3900 men and women 35 years of age and older during 41 347 person-years of observation.

    Results

    Mortality was considerably higher in secular kibbutzim.

    Cox proportional hazards analysis was used to adjust for age and the matched design ; rate ratios were 1.67 (95% confidence interval [CI]=1.17,2.39) for men, 2.67 (95% CI=1.55,4.60) for women, and 1.93 (95% CI=1.44,2.59) overall.

    Kaplan-Meier survival analysis of birth cohorts confirmed the association.

    The lower mortality in religious kibbutzim was consistent for all major causes of death.

    Conclusions

    Belonging to a religious collective was associated with a strong protective effect not attributable to cofounding by sociodemographic factors.

    Elucidation of mechanisms mediating this effect may provide etiologic insights and leads for intervention.
