Lying and Health

Research by Anita Kelly of University of Notre Dame showed that the more people lied the more unhealthy they were. She did her study by coupling lie detection with a lie detector to periodic health surveys.
Linda Stroll strudied trust and health find that those who were least trustworthy had more stress due to increased conflict in their lives.
Outwardly sociopaths and psychopaths appear at least for awhile to have success but all the while their 'insides' are 'putrifying.  It was apparent that the relationships of liars lacked substance and depth. Possibly Fathers who lied couldn't 'love' their children with depth or their families as such  because lying is associated with an unhealthy environment.  Mothers who lie are prone to excessive conflict as well.
