Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Men living alone are at greater risk of inflammation, study says

A new study conducted at the Copenhagen Aging and Midlife Biobank examined nearly 5,000 blood samples. It found that there is a significant association between partner breakups or years of living alone and inflation among male participants. There seems to be a considerable link between psychological stress and biological variables related to inflammation. Chronic inflammation is thought to have a negative impact on a person’s tissues and organs, such as DNA damage, tissue death, and internal scarring, which could cause diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cognitive decline, and dementia. We can probably agree that psychological well-being and biological health are somehow related. But it needs more study to find why men are more stressed by living alone or breakups than women.

Enjoy reading the article and think about why psychological stress affects more on men’s health than women’s.
