The Great Recession raised America’s blood pressure, study finds (Washington Post)

The Washington Post quoted Eileen Crimmins of the USC Leonard Davis School about a study that found the Great Recession raised Americans blood pressure. “If you’re working with that much data and you get that much change, there’s something there in terms of causation,” Crimmins said. “The difficulty is often is getting the causation. But the more data you have about the before, the more certain you are about what caused the after.”
