Why Women are Way More Likely than Men to Suffer Anxiety
A new paper reveals that, globally, women and young adults are suffering the most.
The paper, published online this week in the journal Brain and Behavior, suggests that women are almost twice as likely as men to experience anxiety. This gender gap might be a result of differences in brain chemistry and hormonal fluctuations, or how men and women tend to cope with stress differently, said Olivia Remes, lead author of the paper and a doctoral candidate at the University of Cambridge in England.
Additionally, people younger than 35 living in North America and Western Europe are the most likely to be affected by anxiety, according to the paper.
Between Anxiety and Addiction
“Onе important result іѕ thе оvеrlар bеtwееn аnxіеtу аnd аddісtіоn. Thіѕ means thаt treatment providers nееd to соnѕіdеr a focus оn аnxіеtу, аnd [it] raises thе possibility that реорlе may use ѕubѕtаnсеѕ in wауѕ that both іnсrеаѕе аnd help mаnаgе thеіr аnxіеtу ѕуmрtоmѕ,” Sоmеrѕ said.

Nonetheless, Remes said, many people around the world suffer anxiety — and that was surprising.
“Our study helps to clarify and shed light on the following important issue: Anxiety is common not only in people with serious chronic diseases, such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease, but it frequently develops in healthy, young people,” Remes said. “Once it develops, it can lead to a host of negative outcomes. Anxiety can develop in anyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or race, and it affects populations around the world.”
