Changing Families: Weakening grip strength could determine major health risks

CHANGING FAMILIES - Harvard Medical School claims your grip strength may help measure your risk for some deadly conditions.

Researchers measured the grip strength of about 140,000 adults and followed their health for four years.

Each 11 pound decrease in grip strength over the study was linked to a 17 percent higher risk of dying from heart disease, a 9 percent increased risk of stroke, and a 7 percent higher risk of heart attack.
