While conservatives argue that the United States will be on the road to ruin if same-sex marriage is legalized, researchers have released a new study that shows that gay and lesbian marriage creates a healthier environment, particularly for gay men. The study shows that the number of visits to gay health clinics significantly drops after gay marriage was made legal in certain states and countries.

A UK HIV charity also claims that there is “a clear link between happiness and health.” To back this claim, Researchers from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health surveyed the demand for medical and mental health care from 1,211 gay men registered with a particular health clinic in the 12 months prior to the change, and the 12 months afterwards.” The study showed a drop in healthcare visits by 13% along with “a reduction in blood pressure problems, depression and ‘adjustment disorders.'” [BBC]
