Married People Have Weaker Immunity System

immunity systemQuarrels in a friendly couple negatively affects not only the psychological state, but also the work of the immune system. Such a conclusion was reached by scientists from the University of Ohio (USA). It turns out that people with problems in marriage made 11 times more cortisol (stress hormone) and less T-cells that fight infections.

When there are problems among the spouses, explains the researchers, the body responds to it by producing hormones of stress. Also under such conditions there is a disturbance of sleep, and the level of depression is increased. And what becomes more disturbing is a person, the less its immune system is able to resist infections.

Under such conditions, there are 22 percent less of T cells. By the way, women are at a higher level of anxiety, whereas men are more likely to have an increased level of cortisol.
