“Expensive Cure”

Here is a piece of research which is unlikely to be acted upon quickly, even though it is rather stating the obvious.

Researchers from the University of California – who swore on oath that they had not been inhaling any unusual substances recently – found that there was a link between low wages and high blood pressure, particularly in women and people aged between 25 and 44.

California research[1]

In a study of over 5,000 households, they found that those on double their wage compared to the start of the three-year study, had a whacking 16% decrease in the risk of hypertension.

That’s the answer then, double everyone’s wages and we will reduce high blood pressure.  Or we could all go on the Wacky Backy.

  1. Interesting, sobering! What is behind this study? Maybe if one looks it is the milk of human kindness? What ever our own level of pay, relative to each other there will all ways be someone on lower pay! What about our fellow Man/woman, do we encourage them to exist and suffer the trials and trivulations of the day, or does one lend a helping hand as a society and offer help/assistance in the mode of life, and make each individual feel good about themselves or their families, so that in the good times when they have had their own personal struggle, they will then turn around and help others, as they where each helped. I thought this was the stuff of a good faith, such as Christianity. What do you think?? This research to me sugests the researchers life is shallow and devoid of love and compassion.
