Trust and health: testing the reverse causality hypothesis.

Giordano, Giuseppe Nicola LU and Lindström, Martin LU (2015) In Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health
Abstract
Social capital research has consistently shown positive associations between generalised trust and health outcomes over 2 decades. Longitudinal studies attempting to test causal relationships further support the theory that trust is an independent predictor of health. However, as the reverse causality hypothesis has yet to be empirically tested, a knowledge gap remains. The aim of this study, therefore, was to investigate if health status predicts trust.
