Experts from the University of Georgia proved that financial constraints reduce the duration of human life and accelerate the aging process.
Scientists conducted a study involving U.S. residents aged 20 to 40 years. After analyzing the level of incomes, the researchers came to the conclusion that people from middle and low income, are getting old much faster, those who earn a decent amount.
According to the findings, poor people generally look on average 5-7 years older than his age. Apparently, the extra money gives the opportunity to monitor their appearance, visiting beauty salons and fitness clubs.
There is another important factor – stress. It is proved that poor people are faced with stress significantly more often than the rich because of financial problems. Constant tension leads to diseases and deterioration of physical appearance, sum up the scientists.
