Medical News Today (the most trusted website covering Today's Medical News) published the results of American Heart Journal's research carried out on some 1,800 heart bypass patients, and the God-fearing churchies who prayed for their recovery.
In a nutshell, 59% of patients who were told they were in their loved ones' prayers developed complications after surgery — that is to say, they woke up in the morgue — compared to only 52% of patients who were prayed for without prior consent, or who had godless f**ks for friends who didn't pray for them at all.
So if flat-lining in the O.R. isn't your gig, either start hanging out with more agnostics or ease up on the bacon double cheeseburgers. Amen.
