What Causes Heart Disease? How Love Affects Heart Health
The heart is not just a vital organ that pumps blood throughout your body, it also universally represents love and affection.
New research seeks to draw a stronger connection between a person’s capacity to love and their risk of developing heart disease later on in life. In fact, recent studies found that heart patients who are divorced, separated, widowed or never married have a higher risk of dying than their married counterparts. Additionally, married individuals tend to have a lower risk of developing heart disease and are more likely to survive a heart attack. The science behind this links back to the chemicals in our brain releasing feel-good endorphins and hormones when a person is in love. Today has even more.
