Danish researchers found a surprising link between higher education and health. It turned out that without a higher education cannot survive for long. ?It is not necessary to abandon higher education to the heart is not abandoned you – was the conclusion of a study conducted by Dr. Eva Prescott, along with colleagues from the University Hospital in Copenhagen. The study is published in the journal European Heart Journal.
Scientists have found a well-educated men and women; the risk of hospitalization for acute heart failure (AHF) is almost two times less than that of people not so educated. The researchers also tracked absolutely clear socioeconomic patterns in patients with AHF, which did not stem from differences in their lifestyle.
How can we explain this discrepancy? Dr. Prescott believes that the thing is, what treatment a patient receives. Educated people often pass through echocardiography (ECG), which may fix the breach of the heart in the very early stages even in apparently healthy patient. Therefore, prevention and treatment of acute heart failure takes place before admission.
“You cannot lose more and a risk factor for acute heart failure as psychosocial stress – says Dr. Prescott. – Unfortunately, this factor has received very little scientific attention until recently.” Scientists from Denmark watched 18, 616 people for 31 years. Risk factors were assessed by means of special questionnaires selectively men also performed an electrocardiogram.
