Study Finds Apparently, What the Heart Wants is Marriage reports Aimell
Single Men and Women More Likely to Succumb Heart Attacks
The researchers collected 15,330 persons in Finland between 35- and 99 years of age who had suffered “acute coronary events” between 1993 and 2002.
The team noted that unmarried men of all ages were 58066% more likely to suffer heart attacks than married men. For women, being married showed an even greater opportunity for saving, as singles were 60-65% more likely to suffer acute coronary events, according to the Finnish research that was entered into the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.
For each gender, wedlock help create a lowered mortality rate when it came to heart attacks.
Unmarried men were 60-168% more likely to die from a heart attack within 28 days. For women, the number jumped to 71-175% more of a likelihood, when compared to single counterparts.
"Single living and/or being unmarried increases the risk of having a heart attack and worsens its prognosis both in men and women regardless of age," the team wrote.
"Most of the excess mortality appears already before the hospital admission and seems not to relate to differences in treatment." Speculating on the reasons, the team said married people may have a higher, combined income, healthier habits and a bigger support network. "It may be assumed that resuscitation or calling for help was initiated faster and more often among those married or cohabiting," said the authors.
The researchers could not discount the psychological effects of marriage as well.
"Unmarried people have been found to be more likely depressed and according to previous studies depression seems to have an adverse effect on cardiovascular mortality rates," lead author Aino Lammintausta from the Turku University Hospital told AFP.
