Last researches of demographers show that presence of children in a family influences parents’ lifetime considerably. It affects both men and women equally brightly.
Earlier it was proved that lifetime of mothers depends on presence of children, now it is already possible to prove the same law among fathers too.
Experts from London and Oslo found out that for men who have children, risk of death decreases 35 % in comparison with childless men.
The analysis of biographies of 1,5 million men and women was carried out, it appeared that risk of death of mothers of 2 children is 50 % lower, than for childless women of same age. For men this indicator is 35 %.
This is explianed by the fact that parents strive to lead a healthier way of life more, than childless people.
