One remarkable discovery by science is the relationship between the strength of the immune system and worship. Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a protein our bodies use to counter inflammation and to boost the immune system. High levels of IL-6 are indicative of a compromised immune system whereas low levels are often associated with a strong immune system. In a longitudinal study, scientists at Duke University discovered that participants who were frequently engaged in active church worship had lower IL-6 levels in their blood than their counterparts who never went to church, after controlling for many factors; meaning that regular worshippers manifested a stronger immune system than non-worshippers.
