Study: Being homophobic shortens life

Posted: Updated:

According to research from Columbia University, being homophobic cuts two and a half years off your life.

Researchers say people with antigay attitudes tend to have more stress, which is linked to cardiovascular problems, heavy drinking, smoking and overeating - all factors that could affect life span.

The findings back up earlier research that hate is bad for health.
