A separation can break the hearts of men but also cause them to die early! New research is startling.
Divorce has a surprising effect on the health of men. It increases their risk of early death, addiction, suicide and depression. Divorced men develop more heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke than married men. As they also have an unfortunate tendency to take part in risky activities they also increase their mortality rate. They are also much more likely to commit suicide sadly.
People’s perception of many cultures and media convey the idea that men are strong, Resistant, and less vulnerable to psychological trauma than women. It seems to us that this human vision is false. Men who have suffered psychological trauma, such as divorce, bankruptcy, war and bereavement are more vulnerable than women and lose their landmarks more easily and quickly.
The researchers remind physicians that they should pay particular attention to this sensitive population. Without psychological support, men tend to let go and not take care of their health. Alcohol, drugs, unbalanced diet, unsafe practices, irritability, stress, anxiety, asocial behaviors in the workplace, divorced men seem to lose their minds quickly and engage in a destructive life.
Jeffrey Feulner of the Men’s divorce law firm states that: “Men are at their most vulnerable during a divorce. It’s important that we recognize the need for space”.
These statements confirm a study previously published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, which found that married people are healthier than single, divorced or widowed. And that of the Boston Women’s Cancer Research Center, which states that married cancer patients increase their chances of survival by a lot.
