This scientific study about Loneliness was conducted during 2014, but, i was recently watching a talk show, Merv Griffin, that was from the mid 1980s and one of his guests, Betty White, said "Lonliness Is A Disease" ands i was like, wow, shes right and i've been thinking about that sad and sorry fact ever since, i mean like think about it, theres around 8,000,000,000 people living in this world and so if your a lonely person, who always wants to be alone, then lets face it, theres something wrong with you, there is a damaged brain thats malfunctioning, both physically and psychologically and so lets also face this faith shattering fact as well, that, the miserable hell of child abuse is probably the origins of this hushed up by denial disease...

Quote: A new loneliness study has revealed that the feeling of being isolated — at least emotionally — from the rest of the world, is not just a symptom of depression. It’s an actual disease.

Forbes reports that the research was co-authored by John Cacioppo, a “pioneer in the field of social neuroscience,” that the site describes as a “loneliness expert.”

Cacioppo and his fellow researchers “reviewed a wealth of research conducted over the last several years that collectively provides a new perspective on the condition,” writes Forbes columnist David DiSalvo. “Most importantly, the research shows that the lonely brain is structurally and biochemically different than the non-lonely brain, and these underlying differences are not merely symptoms, but the cause of additional problems.”

The research team’s findings also point out that the disease of loneliness cannot be laid entirely at genetics door.

“Loneliness is about 50 percent heritable, but this does not mean loneliness is determined by genes,” Cacioppo said in a previous interview with Forbes. “An equal amount is due to situational factors. What appears to be heritable is the intensity of pain felt when one feels socially isolated.”

Psychologists have long distinguished the feeling of loneliness from that of simply being alone.

When one is busy “being alone,” they are simply living with themselves for better or worse, and indulging in typical day-to-day behaviors. One can be quite happy being alone.

Loneliness, however, is another story.

It’s that feeling that you can be walking down a crowded street or have thousands of Facebook and Twitter followers, yet you still feel there is no one to relate to or turn to in times of need.

If it is a disease I assume we can expect a pill against loneliness soon?

I think loneliness can be lessened if everyone just made an effort to reach out, even in small ways, to others...even just a smile can do wonders.

Yes loneliness can be a result of lack of ability to communicate,

But it can also be because of many more reasons,

One of them is perhaps a person WANTS to be lonely,

DEFINITELY loneliness is not a disease.

Loneliness is a sign of a miscommunication, stress and obviously seeking companionship. This is a logic observation. Those that choose loneliness are either insecure to themselves, because others treat them to a degree of abuse and leads to discomfort and isolation. Because neglect is another major reason why people are cruel to each other and pronounce anything that is too literal as a crime of nature and try submitted it to the compartment of abnormal and treatable injections.
