STUDY FINDS HEART PATIENTS NOT HELPED BY PRAYER
AP - In the largest study of its kind, researchers found that having
people pray for heart bypass surgery patients had no effect on their
recovery. In fact, patients who knew they were being prayed for had a
slightly higher rate of complications. . . The work, which followed
about 1,800 patients at six medical centers, was financed by the
Templeton Foundation, which supports research into science and
religion. It will appear in the American Heart Journal.
