The Life Insurance Market
People who fear that they may end up victims of heart disease and depression should get critical illness cover, as the combination of the two can be much more deadly than the problems on their own.
Researchers from University College London and the University of Versailles tracked 6,000 middle-aged people for more than five years before coming up with their results.
They discovered that people with just heart disease had a 67 per cent higher chance of dying from any illness, than those with healthy hearts and no depression.
However, depressed people with heart disease tripled the risk of death from any cause and quadrupled the risk of dying from cardiovascular issues.
This may come as worrying news to some people who may want to check out their critical illness cover to make sure they are covered.
