Does participation in religious activities enhance your physical health?  Can prayer assist in the healing process?  Jeff Levin, University Professor of Epidemiology & Population Health and director of the Program on Religion & Population Health at Baylor University, talks about various findings connecting religious belief and practice with physical well-being.  Prof. Levin also provides an intriguing discussion into how the general medical profession has grown to accept the imporance of religion as a variable that needs to be studied seriously.  We discuss the differences between religion & health as well as spirituality & healing, and how researchers conduct research in this field.  Recorded: May 31, 2010.
