ATLANTA (WAOK) – A new study out of Finland says being unmarried increases the risk of a heart attack.
The findings, published in “Doctors Health Press,” say it’s true in men and women, whatever their age.
The study looked at 15-thousand heart attacks over a ten-year period.
It found that cardiac events were 58 to 66-percent higher in unmarried men, and 60 to 65-percent higher in unmarried women.
