Marriage cuts heart attack risk

BALTIMORE - Tying the knot appears to do wonders for your heart.

A Finnish study looked at more than 15,000 cardiac events over a ten-year period.

It found heart attacks were 58-66% higher in unmarried men and 60-65% higher in unmarried women.

Researchers think it may be because married people have someone to confide in, as a way to reduce stress.

Also, they have made better health habits.
