Study Shows Unemployment Can Be Deadly

Study Shows Unemployment Can Be Deadly



If being unemployed wasn't enough of a bummer, a new
study says those without a job -- especially men -- are more likely to
die early.













Using research from the past 40
years of 20 million people, researchers at McGill and Stonybrook
Universities found that unemployment increases the risk of premature
mortality by 63%. Men are at an even greater risk: male were 40% more
likely to die over women, with the highest percentages at ages under 50.













"In our society, men are more
expected to have a job and bring home a salary," researcher and McGill
professor Eran Shor told told LiveScience. "When they can't do that, it is very stressful."


That sort of anxiety and depression can lead to a
number unhealthy habits, like eating boxes of cookies just because it's
in the kitchen, or watching hours of Law & Order reruns instead of going to the gym, despite the extra time to cook or exercise.













"They have to be mindful of the
likelihood that they could fall into an unhealthy lifestyle," Cincinati
psychologist Kenneth Manges told LiveScience about the jobless,
explaining that habits like smoking and excess drinking are easy for the
unemployed to pick up.














Additionally, unemployed people are less likely to have good healthcare, making it more difficult to be treated for sickness.

This is insane. They say extra time to cook and exercise, but the unemployed can't afford a food, let alone a gym membership. How are the unemployed able to smoke and drink all day with no funds? Watching Law and Order all day with no cable is also hard to do. Very strange study.
