The lonely life would be accelerated cardiovascular aging
According to a new study conducted by Cornell University scientists, alone the impact of the aging process is similar to an increase risk of heart disease. The researchers noted that as we age with our cardiovascular function degradation, alone can accelerate this process.
The scientists said this study tells people that the social is an essential activity, we need to keep in touch with the community. In order to conduct this study, the scientists of 182 male participants were analyzed. The participants into two groups, a group aged between 18-30 years old, and another group aged between 65-80 years of age. Scientists asking them to pieces of speech in the laboratory and the completion of some mental arithmetic problems. Before and after the test, the scientists measured the blood pressure of participants to assess their social ties.
As expected, the higher the quiet blood pressure of elderly participants, cardiovascular emergency response is more intense, cardiovascular recovery time than younger participants. The study found that in addition to the elderly, this effect is more obvious loners who, which also face higher health risks. Elderly loners longer recovery time, within two hours after the test can not be restored to baseline levels.
