Midlife Death Sentence?
Forget midlife crisis-- if you're middle aged, you may have bigger things to worry about during this economic madness.
During this time of an economic roller coaster, middle-aged and older adults are most likely to see death as a result according to the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
Death rates of citizens in 19 developed countries between ages 40 and 44, and 70 to 74, over a period of 50 years, show that mortality rates increase during economic expansion.
Workplace stress plays a key role in this data, as well as traffic accidents.
Interestingly, in 2010 the Journal of Political Economy stated that children were the ones to fall ill to death during sudden economic expansion.
Has the economic state directly affected you in any way health-wise?
