Women More Likely To Experience Anxiety Than Men, Global Review Suggests.

BBC News (UK) (6/6) reports that a global review of 48 studies on anxiety conducted by researchers from the University of Cambridge estimated that “four out of every 100 people are affected by anxiety.” The report said “women, young people under 35 and those with health problems were particularly affected.” The findings were published in the journal Brain and Behavior.

The Guardian (UK) (6/5, Davis) reports that the research revealed “women are nearly twice as likely to experience anxiety as men.” Additionally, those “suffering from diseases including cancer, stroke and multiple sclerosis have a higher chance of experiencing symptoms of anxiety than healthy individuals.”
