Better Education, Healthy Heart

Parent Interventions

A new study has revealed that better people with better educational levels have a healthy heart. 
A study was conducted over a period of 15 years in 25 nations as diverse as India, Malaysia, Brazil, Tanzania to name a few. Two questionnaires were collected from families to get details about health, education and financial status. It was found that those with better educational attainments had a healthy heart although more wealth did not lead to better heart health. The study was conducted in the age group of 35 to 70 years. 
The study underscores the role that better education in preventing cardiac problems in adulthood and thereby relieving the pressures on our public health system.
