Why Poor People Have Higher Risk of Heart Disease


Yep it turns out that when you are poor the
lack of money is not the only issue you have. Excepting the fact that you have to work harder,
or sometimes having 2 jobs at the same time and never manage to buy the things you want,
the last study showed that poor people have higher risk of heart disease. It was made on 111.205 individuals from eight
previous studies across Europe and found that 13% of the association between occupation
and coronary heart disease is attributed to a lack of sleep, though this factor only showed
up significantly on men. Study after study has linked sleep with all
kinds of areas of wellbeing, such as our risk of depression and lapses in memory. A proper rest is essential for restoring and
recharging the body, and if we don’t get enough sleep, we quickly start to feel it. As for cardiovascular health, its association
with sleep is now well established. The new study reveal the relationship between
sleep, income, and cardiovascular disorders. But why is a men more affected of this than
a women? The researchers suggest that womens are generally
more likely to already be under stress and strain from household responsibilities so
the burden of a low-income job might be a smaller part of the picture for women than
for men. The study scientists acknowledge the difficulty
of pooling data across several different studies which included a mix of self-reported and
scientifically measured sleep, so it’s too early to say this link is definitively confirmed. Still, it’s an impressively large sample collected
, and it certainly shows how society could seek to lower the risk of heart disease in
the poorest parts of our community. For example by finding ways to prioritise
people having a good night’s sleep. So refresh your room, close all windows and
doors and try to have a relaxing minimum 8 hours sleep. Tomorrow may be the big day for you! How much do you sleep? Go in our community section, vote your sleeping
