Arizona, friendship quality would be seen when someone is in trouble, for example during illness. The relationship between health with friends pretty closely, because studies prove that a sickly youth tend not to have many friends.
However, this condition is often not realized, because usually teens who are sick do not feel there is a problem with a friendship. If asked to name the friends who are familiar with it, then there were not much different from that mentioned other healthy teenager.
Conversely when healthy adolescents were asked the name of a friend who is considered familiar, sickly teenager who most often included in these lists. That is, sickly teenager who just feel I have many friends though actually not much to consider friends.
This sad fact was revealed in a study conducted by Steven Haas, scientists from Arizona State University. The results of this study published in the journals published by the Center for Advancing Health.
No fewer than 2060 school-age adolescents throughout the United States included in the study . Haas teens surveyed in the period of 2 years since 1994 and it took many years to analyze it.
The result is quite sad, adolescents are less healthy have a chance of 20 percent less for the entry in the list of friends other teenagers. Fortunately this is not realized by teenagers who are sick, so it does not affect the spirit to heal.
“Teenagers who are sick tend to judge the quality of friendship is better than the real thing. It is not yet concluded whether that affects the health of friends, or otherwise affecting the health of friends,” said Haas, Thursday (12/09/2010).
