A research team at University of Arizona published a report that divorce is linked to high blood pressure, which eventually leads to heart attacks, strokes, kidney damage and dementia.  Based on a survey with 138 people who recently separated, people with bad sleeping quality for up to 10 weeks after divorce more likely to suffer from high blood pressure.  It can be worse for those who already have high blood pressure.

    It would be interesting to see a comparison between individuals who are recently divorced and those who are in unhappy marriages. Perhaps the risks of stroke and other complications after divorce are less than the risks of continuing to stay in an unhappy marriage. The comparison would be fascinating.

    Nice find, but then again, those who are married might end up having a higher blood pressure than those who got a divorced :)
