The authors of the new study analyzed data from 941 Britons who died between 2007 and 2018. Scientists have accessed information about the relationships of these people with their relatives.
The researchers saw some interesting correlations. If a man had an overprotective father, his risk of not reaching the age of 80 was 12% higher than his peers. For women, the risk increased by 22%.
Scientists also found that if a woman has a caring mother, she is less prone to stress, which means her risk of premature death.
It is also interesting that if a man grew up in an incomplete family and had an infectious disease in childhood, the risk of dying before the age of 80 is 279% higher than his peers with other experience.
