(ORDO NEWS) — A study by researchers at Harvard Medical School and the University of Texas found that low-income people are at greater risk of dying from a heart attack than high-income people.
The study analyzed a 10-year follow-up of more than 86,000 Americans of various races and socioeconomic groups.
Scientists have found that people with an income of less than $35,000 a year have a 17% greater risk of dying from a heart attack than people with an income of more than $75,000 a year.
One of the reasons for this is the fact that low-income people are more likely to face problems in accessing quality health care and healthy food.
The level of education also plays an important role, which is also associated with income, and can influence a healthy lifestyle and the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
The scientists emphasize that improving access to quality health care and supporting a healthy lifestyle can reduce the risk of dying from a heart attack in low-income people.
