Fathers Less Likely to Die from Heart Disease
New research suggests that dads are a little less likely to die of heart-related problems than childless men are. The study — by the AARP, the government and several universities — is the largest ever on male fertility and mortality, involving nearly 138,000 men. Although a study like this can't prove that fatherhood and mortality are related, there are plenty of reasons to think they might be, several heart disease experts said.
