Divorce Attorney In Broward Aware That Children May Be Prone To Strokes

A recent study from the University of Toronto found the children of divorced parents had twice the odds of having a stroke than people of the same age whose parents remained married. The link does not appear to have a correlation with adult health behaviors, adult socioeconomic status, mental health problems or diabetes. Researchers did not investigate diet, cholesterol levels, blood pressure, family history of a stroke or childhood socioeconomic status. While the research team at the University of Toronto believe that a couple’s divorce will cause their child to have a stroke, they do want to analyze a larger representative community.
