I do not understand when it is more accurate to say "to benefit from" than "to profit from". Are they interchangeable or is there precise context to employ one rather than the other?
This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

They are both similar in meaning, but "to profit from" implies financial gain, whereas "to benefit from" could refer to any sort of positive result.
