Poor relationship with family bad for your health
Having a strained relationship with parents, siblings or child may be more harmful to people”s health than enduring rocky romantic partnerships, according to a new study.
“We found that family emotional climate had a big effect on overall health, including the development or worsening of chronic conditions such as stroke and headaches over the 20-year span of midlife,” the study”s lead author Sarah B. Woods, Assistant Professor at University of Texas, said.
“Contrary to previous research, which found that intimate relationships had a large effect on physical health, we did not get the same results.”
