Can education and occupation influence cardiovascular health and mortality?

Researchers of the Department of Cardiology – Cardiology I at the University Medical Center Mainz have shown that people with low socioeconomic status (SES) had a higher risk of developing a cardiovascular disease. They also had an increased risk of death. Educational attainment and employment status played a greater role than the income of the study participants. The results from the Gutenberg Health Study (GHS) were published in the current issue of the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.
