Talking and Long Life: A Soviet gerontologist published research statistics that could transform the old adage, "He kills me with his chatter" into "He’s killing himself with his chatter." Professor Gurianin says his statistics show that the lesser one talks, the longer one lives.

Deaf people, hermits, shepherds and monks -- all usually taciturn -- are known for living long lives.
