    Women who had both mumps and measles as a child were 14% less likely to die from a hemorrhagic stroke (where a blood vessels busts in the brain) during a 19-21 year follow-up than women who did not have either of these diseases according to a study of 43,689 men and 60,147 women aged 40-79 years at baseline.

     


    “Despite this possibility, the fact remains that 
the more infections people acquire during childhood, 
the lower their risk of mortality from [cardiovascular disease], 
possibly due to the induction of regulatory T cells,” the authors of the paper noted.

    “In conclusion, measles and mumps infections were associated with decreased risks of mortality from [cardiovascular disease].

    “In addition, people with a history of more infections 
were likely to have lower risks of mortality from [cardiovascular disease].
