Married life greatly reduces risk of heart attack

(January 31, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

 From Finland - A new report published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology finds that marriage reduces risk of heart attack in both men and women of all ages. Researchers studied over 15,000 fatal and non-fatal cardiac events that occurred over a 9 year period. Half of these events resulted in the individual dying within 28 days. Results showed that rates of these events was 58-66% higher in unmarried men and 60-65% higher in unmarried women when compared to married men and women of any age. 28 day mortality rates among unmarried men were 60-168% higher than married men, and 71-175% higher in unmarried women than married women.
