US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy recently issued an advisory emphasizing the prevalence and impact of loneliness and isolation, stating that disconnection affects mental, physical, and societal well-being. The report highlights that young adults are almost twice as likely to experience loneliness compared to those over 65, while marginalized populations face higher risks. The relationships that we form with others are crucial for healthy bodies and minds.
