Stroke & Divorce

Men from divorced families may have a higher chance of suffering a stroke.

New medical research indicates adult men have a *three times* higher chance of having a stroke, if their parents were divorced before they reached 18 years old.

Scientists say they cannot pinpoint a reason for the connection; but, say, it could be due to an increase cortisol, a hormone created by stress.

Research suggests it could affect how boys react to stress as they get older.{} The study found girls were not affected.
