London: Believe it or not, lonelinessspreads like a disease.
"On the periphery people have fewer friends, yet theirloneliness leads them to losing the few ties they have left.These reinforcing effects mean that our social fabric can frayat the edges, like a yarn that comes loose at the end of acrocheted sweater. "Because loneliness is associated with a variety ofmental and physical diseases that can shorten life it isimportant for people to recognise loneliness and help thosepeople connect with their social group before the lonelyindividuals move to the edges."
