On the 14th, teams such as Osaka Public University announced in the US scientific journal Science that men who lost more than a certain percentage of the Y chromosome among sex chromosomes tend to have an increased risk of dying from heart disease. Heart failure is said to be 1.8 times that of normal people. Soichi Sano, a specially appointed lecturer at Osaka Public University (Department of Cardiology), said, “If you grasp the loss of chromosomes, you will be able to find people who are at high risk of developing a specific disease.”

When the team investigated the relationship between the loss of the Y chromosome and heart failure, when the Y chromosome was lost in 40% or more of the blood cells, the mortality rate from heart failure and hypertensive heart disease was 3 compared to those who did not lose it. ・ It turned out to be 5 times.
