Elderly Women in Better Hands With Biological Daughters: Study (JAPAN)



Elderly women in better hands with biological daughters: Study
 By Misty Harris, Postmedia News

Think your mother-in-law will be the death of you? Turns out, it's more likely the other way around.
A four-year study from Japan finds elderly women under the care of a daughter-in-law are twice as likely to die as those whose caretaker is a biological daughter. Writing in the journal BMC Geriatrics, the researchers describe this as a "survival penalty," and theorize that the higher mortality risk is partly due to the strained relationship a mother can have with her son's wife.

Deborah Merrill, a Clark University sociologist cited in the paper, says it likely comes down to differences in intensity.
