(Reuters Health) – For people who have a higher risk of heart disease and premature death, a new study suggests that in early adulthood a sudden, unpredictable income will decrease.
Young adults with two or more significant drops of revenues over a period of 15 years are more than twice the risk of developing heart disease and have at least twice the risk of people with more stable income. Broadcast
Traine Elpacey, Miami University's leading author of Florida, said that generally the assessment of the connection between income and death is increased. "We looked at the adults between the ages of 23 and 35 at the beginning of our study."
Reduction in revenue can be very stressful, says Elphsi. "Think about the average American family," she explained. "$ 5,000 to $ 10,000 reductions in revenues can really be devastating."
Elfassy and her colleagues analyzed data from current coronary artery risk development in the study of CARDIA, which tracks 3,937 people from four American cities: Birmingham, Alabama; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Chicago, Illinois; And Oakland, California
When CARDIA started in 1990, the study volunteers were all at 23 to 35 years of age. Their health status was examined every six months, and they were questioned about their income between 1990 and 2005.
Between 2005 and 2015, there were more than half the risk of developing cardiovascular disease among people with multiple reductions in revenues and the probability of premature death would be 92% higher than those of fixed payers.
Researchers focused heavily on the economic impact – losses of more than $ 20,000 – will be on cardiovascular events. Compared with individuals, at least one major reduction in individuals is almost four times more likely to develop cardiovascular disease and may die prematurely without making any major changes in income.
Professor Tiffany Gary-Web, an Associate Professor of Pathology and Behavioral Health at the Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health University, welcomes these findings. Gary-Webb said, "I think that in order to understand some things happening in today's world, we need more studies like this – how this affects all economic instability and how it results in health." "We speak a lot about other outcomes like employment, but we are not always involved with the next steps and health outcomes."
The reduction of uncertain income can force people to make strict choices and remove healthcare, Gary-Webb said. "If you have a volatile income, you may have to do business for things like rent or food for medicines," she added. "Many of those businesses are not good for good health behaviors."
Dr. H. Harper of the Detroit Medical Center Harper University Hospital James Glazier said that the relationship between revenues and heart disease can be stress-related. Glazier said that this is not the first time between income and health. It points to Whitehall Studies that many decades ago, it was found that cardiovascular disease is more prevalent among low-income British civilian employees.
In addition, Glazier said that recent studies in stock brokers have shown that blood pressure increased when the market was volatile.
Glazier said that & # 39; A healthy strain can damage your heart. The & # 39; "And we know that emotional stress, like the loss of a partner, can lead to heart problems. The effect is actually named, broken heart syndrome or Takashi cardiacop."
Glazier said that even without science, we recognize the lethal effect of stress. "It's in the local language: & # 39; If you do not stop worrying, you'll get a stroke. & # 39; Stop worrying or you'll kill yourself. & # 39;
