Pennsylvania: The changing environment, psychological pressures, employment pressures, domestic responsibilities and social issues are having a detrimental effect on women’s health and they are suffering from heart diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases.
The study was conducted by scientists at the Dornsify School of Public Health at Drexel University. This study specifically looks at employment and social pressures. In other words, the hassle of socializing and maintaining relationships and the hassle of work as a whole are a double whammy and thus increase the risk of heart disease in women by 21% compared to others. The study is published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
In addition, psychological factors such as the death of a spouse, divorce and separation, mockery of the home or in-laws, social pressure affect women individually. At the same time, toxic office environment, work pressure, injustice and other issues push women towards more frustration and illness. These conditions can cause heart disease in 9 to 12 percent of cases.
The study looked at more than 80,000 women who had gone through menopause. All of them have been reviewed from 1991 to 2015. From time to time, social psychological stress, especially job stress, and other social factors were observed in these women.
In 14 years of the study, 5% of women had heart disease. A review of all of these factors revealed that economic and employment pressures play a 12% role in the disease, meaning that these factors can increase the likelihood of the disease to 12%. The role of social pressure was seen to be 9%.
