Women Are Nearly Twice More Vulnerable to Anxiety Than Men
Anxiety disorders are usually characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where the first is a worry about the future events and the second is a reaction to current events.
Researchers from the United Kingdom found in a recent study that women are twice as likely to suffer from anxiety as men. They also note that people who live in North America and Western Europe are more vulnerable to this disorder than those who live in other parts of the world. Data show that almost 8 of 100 people suffer from the condition. This is the highest number in the world. In East Asia, the number is less than 3 in 100, and this is the lowest number.
“Anxiety is important and shouldn’t be overlooked,” says lead researcher Olivia Remes from the University of Cambridge’s Strangeways Research Laboratory. “Sometimes people think that anxiety is just a part of their personality or that there’s nothing they can do about it, but there is.”
