婚姻生活能“保护你的身体健康”

文字稿

研究者们称,如果你有胆固醇过高等易引发心脏疾病的征兆,那么婚姻似乎可以大大增加你的存活率。这些科学家在一次心脏学术会议上就这个有近百万名英国成年人参与的调查结果发言时说,“这可能是因为我们的配偶会时刻敦促我们关注自身的健康状况”。 请听报道

All the men and women enrolled in the study who were in their 50s, 60, or 70s at the start had at least one major risk factor for heart disease. Over the next 14 years, the married people fared much better than those who were single.

Married people with high cholesterol were 16% more likely to be alive at the end of the study than those who were unmarried. People with diabetes and high blood pressure also had a higher survival rate if they were married.

The picture was less clear for people cohabiting, separated, divorced or widowed. And the researchers didn’t check if the married people were in happy relationships. They suspect but can’t prove that having someone special in your life is what’s important, rather than simply getting hitched. A spouse may encourage you to stay fit and well.
