Earning Ability May Be Tied to Heart Risk.

Researchers tracked the earnings and heart health of nearly 9,000 adults in the United States for thirty years and found that those who experienced a drop in their income in the first decade of the study had an elevated risk for heart attack, fatal coronary heart disease, heart failure, and stroke over the following twenty years. Meanwhile, participants who saw their income increase by more than 50% during the initial phase of the study had a 20% reduced risk for cardiovascular disease.
