Those with lower education/income have a larger risk for heart failure
According to a MSNBC article, those with less education have a greater risk for developing heart failure. The study followed more than 18,600 Danish participants for two decades and found that those with the most education were 39% less likely to be admitted to a hospital for chronic heart failure compared to those with the least education. The researchers believe that heart failure prevention for lower income people needs to begin earlier in life.
