Cohesive community may reduce heart risk
Cohesive community may reduce heart risk (August 18, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Michigan - Having a friendly local community may reduce risk of heart attack, according to a report published in the BMJ. Since 2006, researchers followed over 5000 adults, none with any known heart problems. Average age of the participants was 70, and they were surveyed every two years. After taking into account potential risk factors, researchers found that each standard deviation increase in perceived community cohesion was linked with a 22% decreased risk of heart attack.
