Some 80pc of cardiovascular disease can be attributed to well-known risk factors including age, sex, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking and diabetes.

'What this study shows is that medics should think about what additional risk this gives the patient both in developing their first heart attack or stroke, or having better long-term outcomes'.

Divorce was associated with 33 percent higher odds of death from coronary heart disease and a more than doubled risk of death from strokes, the study found. Men and women who divorced were also 35 percent more likely to develop heart disease than married people.

While the study wasn't a controlled experiment created to prove whether or how marriage might help improve heart health, there are many reasons marriage might have a protective effect including potentially more financial stability and social support, said senior study author Dr. Mamas Mamas of the University of Keele in the United Kingdom.

According to a new study report, growing old with a partner reduces the risk of heart diseases and stroke. The study included various people from Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia with various ethnicities.

Google AI Can Predict Death For Patients With Amazing Accuracy
The firm claimed that the system is around 10 per cent more accurate than traditional models or a hospital's own warning system. Eventually, Google would like to take "a slew of new AI tools" that can accurately predict symptoms and disease into clinics.

The researchers suggested that future research should focus around whether marital status is a surrogate marker for other adverse health behaviour or cardiovascular risk profiles that underlies our reported findings or whether marital status should be considered as a risk factor by itself.

People who were divorced, widowed or never married had a 42 percent greater risk of developing cardiovascular disease and a 16 percent greater risk of developing coronary artery heart disease than married couples, the study found. Being married may lead to earlier recognition of health problems, having more satisfaction in life, and financial security.

There was no difference in the risk of death following a stroke between married and unmarried people.

Previous findings were mixed in regards to marital status and heart disease, so the researchers reviewed data from 225 past studies which were published between 1963 and 2015. I think that's related to spousal support reminding them of the need to take them'.

The authors caution that the methods used and adjustments made for potentially influential factors varied considerably across all the studies, which may have affected the results of their analysis.
