Your kids may help you live longer

Message  MurielB le Lun 11 Sep - 12:08

do you think that being parents is shaving years off your life ? You are wrong studies say.

Having children can increase life expectancy, especially in very old age, a new study has found.
Parents aged 60 may live up to two years longer than their childless counterparts, according to researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.
Karin Modig and her team used national registry data to analyse the lifespans of more than 1.4 million elderly men and women in relation to their marital status and whether they had children.

They found the risk of death was lower in people with at least one child – an effect more pronounced in men than women.
“At 60 years of age, the difference in life expectancy was two years for men and 1.5 years for women,” said the study, published  in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health.
These studies have not found the reasons yet. The reasons of this work are purely observational. Of course adult children can help their parents : physical, social and emotional support but is it the only reason ? what do you think ?

Fine. That should encourage people to have children, whatever the cost. And what about pets ? Do you increase your life expectancy if you own a pet ?

CARING FOR A PET

+2 Years

Pet owners tend to visit their doctors less often and are less likely to suffer from depression.

Stroking or being near a pet can also lower heart rates and reduce blood pressure levels.

One U.S. study looked at male and female stockbrokers on high blood pressure medication.

Asked to do stressful tests, those with pets had significantly lower heart rate and blood pressure levels.
