For decades, researchers in Europe studied the relationship between a person’s name with the risk of heart attack. Apparently, a man named Colin or Brian and a woman named Linda or Margaret tend to have high blood pressure.
Conversely, blood vessels disease risks which can trigger a heart attack is very low in people with certain names. A man named Daniel and a woman named Emily are likely to have a healthy heart.
According to the Telegraph, this trend was revealed through observations for 80 years that was facilitated the Lloyd’s Pharmacy to some names of people in some parts of Europe. Therefore, the names observed are generally baptismal name.
Daniel is a name that is widely used among the lower middle class citizens, while Colin is very popular in Scotland, where people with heart disease are known to be quite a lot.
Another tendency is the name of Keith and Maureen, who is more susceptible to heart attacks than the name of Sophie and Chloe. The linkage is rational enough, two names mentioned earlier tends to be used by elderly residents.
Man named Colin, Brian and Alan have a risk of having high blood pressure amounting to 47 percent. Simon, Mark and Kevin is only 16 percent while Daniel, Liam and Thomas owns the smallest which is 6 percent.
In women, the lowest risk for high blood pressure is owned by the names of Emily, Sophie and Chloe which are 1 percent. While the highest are Margaret, Linda and Ann which are 50 percent.
“These estimates are very rough, so we do not suggest that the risk is seen just based on a person’s name alone. Everyone should know how much their blood pressure is, and realize that there are risks with the increase of age,” said Chris Frost, a heart expert from Lloyd’s Pharmacy.
Here are the names at risk of high blood pressure:
Men: Brian, Colin, Ronald, Barry, Kenneth, Graham, Roger, Roy, Keith, Terence.
Women: Margaret, Doreen, Patricia, Linda, Jeam, Sheila, Joan, Ann, Christine, Maureen.Tagged with: Healthy Heart, Heart Attack, Heart Attacks, heart disease, High Blood Pressure, name and heart attack, Risk Of Heart Attack,
