Women In US Military May Be No More Likely Than Men To Develop PTSD.

HealthDay (8/29, Preidt) reported, “Women in the US military are no more likely than men to develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),” according to a study published in the September issue of the Journal of Psychiatric Research. For the study, researchers “included more than 2,300 pairs of women and men who were matched on similarities – including combat experience – and followed for an average of seven years.” Investigators found that by “the end of the study, 6.7 percent of women and 6.1 percent of men had developed PTSD, a difference that is not statistically significant.”
