Young fathers are at higher risk of death in middle age

Men who became fathers to 22 years are exposed to as much as 26 percent higher risk of dying in middle age than those who get the first child with 25 years.

Men who became fathers before the age of 25 are at higher risk of death in middle age, according to new research conducted at the University of Helsinki. The researchers found that the stress that fathers experience leads to health problems to those who have had children in their early twenties or even teens.

Men who became fathers before 22, are 26 percent more likely to die in middle age than those who get the first child at 25 years, and those who have become fathers between 22 and 24 years are more vulnerable to mortal danger-induced health problems 14 per cent more often.

On the other hand, those who have become fathers between 30 and 44 years of age are 25 percent less likely to die in middle age than men who get the first child at 25.

The study involved more than 30,000 men from 1985 to 2005, and implemented by the scientists from Finland.

- Results of the research show that there is evidence that young fathers need support in their lives because of the responsibility they bear and the specially important for them is healthy living and healthy habits - said lead researcher Dr. Elina Einiö.
 
During 20 years of research one of the 20 fathers died of diseases related to the heart or alcohol addiction.
