Big income drops tied to heart attack, stroke – CNA

Scientists followed earnings changes for 8,989 middle-aged adults over 6 years, beginning when they were 53 years old, on average. After an average follow-up of 17 years, people who experienced a substantial pay reduction were 17per cent more most likely to have a heart heart, attack, or stroke failure than participants with constant or increasing income. Among participants who experienced substantial income decreases, typical family income dropped from US$ 40,516 to US$ 14,655, researchers report in JAMA Cardiology. For people with steady earnings, average household earnings dipped slightly from US$ 43,897 to US$ 43,057. And, for the fortunate ones whose fortunes enhanced significantly, typical home earnings rose from US$ 26,099 to US$ 53,347.
