Muslims w/ Multiple Wives 5 Times More Likely to Have This Dire Condition

By Debbie Schlussel



Islam Could Kill You AND This Islamic Practice Could Kill Its Adherents

Well, if you follow the Islamic prescription for multiple wives, you, too, can be a part of this prized demographic: heart disease sufferers. Research presented by a Saudi Muslim doctor at the 2015 Asian Pacific Society of Cardiology Congress showed that the risk and severity of heart disease increased among Muslim men as they increased the number of wives to which they were simultaneously married under Islamic law a/k/a sharia. Men with four wives were nearly five times more likely to suffer from heart disease. I guess Darwin would call this halal natural selection.


Polygamy increases the risk of heart disease by more than 4-fold, reveals research presented at the Asian Pacific Society of Cardiology Congress 2015 (APSC 2015) by Dr Amin Daoulah, a cardiologist at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The risk and severity of heart disease increased with the number of wives. . . .

The prospective multicentre observational study examined the relationship between the presence and severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) and number of wives. It included consecutive patients referred for coronary angiography at 5 hospitals in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. CAD was defined as more than 70% narrowing in a major epicardial blood vessel or more than 50% in the left main artery (called left main disease, LMD). Multivessel disease (MVD) was defined as more than one diseased vessel.

The 687 married men in the study had an average age of 59 years and 56% had diabetes, 57% had hypertension and 45% had a past history of CAD. Around two-thirds of the men had one wife (68%) while 19% had 2 wives, 10% had 3 wives and 3% had 4 wives. There were significant baseline differences according to the number of wives. Men with more than 1 wife were more likely to be older, live in a rural area, have a higher income and have a history of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).

Dr Daoulah said: “Polygamy may be more frequent in rural areas because it is more culturally acceptable and getting married at a young age is more common. Also, in the regions that we studied, there was a higher percentage of national citizens residing in rural areas compared to urban areas. Men with multiple wives have to be well supported financially, and although Saudis and Emirati people are supported by their governments, polygamists may need more than one income. They may therefore take on extra employment or have the added pressure of travelling daily to urban areas for higher paid work.”

The researchers found a significant association between number of wives and the presence of CAD, LMD and MVD. Risk increased with the number of wives (see figure). After adjusting for baseline differences, the researchers showed that men who practiced polygamy had a 4.6-fold increased risk of CAD, a 3.5-fold increased risk of LMD and a 2.6-fold elevated risk of MVD.

Dr Daoulah said: “We found an association between an increasing number of wives and the severity and number of coronary blockages. This could be because the need to provide and maintain separate households multiplies the financial burden and emotional expense. Each household must be treated fairly and equally, and it seems likely that the stress of doing that for several spouses and possibly several families of children is considerable.” . . .

Professor Michel Komajda, a past president of the ESC and course director of the ESC programme in Abu Dhabi, said: “We know that long-term stress in family life increases the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD)2 and it would be interesting to see what effect polygamy had on wives’ CHD risk.

Actually, why study that? We all know that in Islam, women are mere property and don’t matter. (And when they do “matter,” they utter the same “death to America, death to Jews” crap as their male counterparts.)

Note that the study was done only on Muslim men (and that Muslim incest and unhealthy inbreeding/inter-family marriage–very common among Muslims–and resulting increased congenital maladies and gene mutations are not considered in this study). While I oppose polygamy regardless of the religion, there is no evidence to suggest this correlation between polygamy and increased risk of heart disease is present in men of non-Muslim religions, such as Mormonism. (In those religions, an increased risk of heart disease might be present because they are constantly being chased by news media interested in vilifying Christians for beliefs and practices about which there is never a peep when practiced more predominantly by Muslims.)

Religion of peace . . . or religion of death via heart disease because of no peace? Seems it’s the latter.


I don’t think any such medical studies have been done into mut’ah marriages–legalized prostitution arrangements under Islamic law primarily engaged in by Shi’ite men–and their effects on health. The world would benefit from more and more of these studies on how Islamic practices affect health (usually negatively).

We all know that Islam is deadly. Now, we know it is deadly both intentionally and unintentionally.

Wives give heart disease? Just one almost killed me.

John the infidel on May 11, 2015 at 5:25 pm

If it kills muhzzies sooner, polygamy should be strongly encouraged.

DS_ROCKS! on May 11, 2015 at 5:30 pm


I thought that married men lived longer. Based upon that rationale, if a man has 4 wives, he’s good for 120 years or more? Now we have this new study to contemplate. I guess it’s back to Monogamy.

Ya’ can’t win.

Peter on May 11, 2015 at 5:33 pm

When are we going to see unbiased, comprehensive studies about the adverse effects of “gay marriage” on the health of those who are so “united”? 1…2…3… (sound of crickets chirping)

ConcernedPatriot on May 11, 2015 at 6:51 pm

While the upside is the deadliness, the propagation hurts.

I am curious about the amount of STDs w multiple wives and sex slaves servicing 20 “husbands” before lunch. There has got to be all kinds of disease among them. DISGUSTING.

Darrell on May 11, 2015 at 7:14 pm

But on the positive side, they suffer less from DBS (Dreaded Semen Backup)!

Mitch on May 11, 2015 at 7:52 pm

Hey ladies!
No alcohol consumption may have something to do with it too.
Not many alcoholics die of heart disease apparently.
When you have 4 baby factories in tow it doesn’t really matter if you kick the bucket a little ahead of schedule from the Darwinian stand point I don’t think.

Mochizuki Koga on May 11, 2015 at 9:25 pm

Although I don’t know what the underground alcohol consumption rate in the land of Saudi is or how it varies.

Mochizuki Koga on May 11, 2015 at 9:34 pm

Aw come on now, you know Muslims are pure pious people and would never touch alcohol or porn or pediophelia or any of the things so prevalent in the land of ‘the great satan’.

………..suuuuuuure, and halal pigs will fly

And I thought the penalty for polygamy was more than one mother in law.

westward wanderer on May 12, 2015 at 12:58 am

    ….not if all your wives are sisters…..!!!

    Shootist on May 12, 2015 at 8:20 am

If that’s the case then multiple wives should be mandatory. Oh, nice pic of those five beautiful wives of Ahmed.

MuzzCrusher on May 12, 2015 at 9:07 am

Story came up in my Medscape. Laughed my tail off.

One wife is enough for any sane man…

I’m even more amazed than ever of how Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines and was able to walk, let along rule Israel. I wonder if he was hard of hearing?

Concerned Citizen on May 12, 2015 at 12:45 pm

Several studies have shown that polygamy has much adverse impacts on the individuals involved in many ways. Some of the pioneering medical studies on this subject have been led by Alean Al-Krenawi, PhD when he was at Ben-Gurion University in Israel, as well as others. Incidentally, Dr. Al-Krenawi, of Bedouin descent, was the first non-Jew to be appointed as the head of an Israel Institute of higher education, as Israel has bent over backward to help Muslims in Israel. (The converse of this wouldn’t happen in a Muslim nation, of course.) Those studies revealed that the women in polygamous marriages experienced significantly higher rates of psychological distress, phobias, depression, psychosomatic illnesses, etc. The children in these marriages also had greater psychological and social problems. So, it should hardly come as a surprise that polygamy also adversely affects the males engaging in that practice.

Here’s a link to some of those earlier studies from the page of “Stop Polygamy in Canada Society,” November 3, 2009:

After reading the source in its entirety, the Saudi-Muslim doctor claimed that the reason why there’s an epidemic of polygamy across Saudi Arabia and the Emirates in rural communities was due to their culture.

This is where I use my critical thinking skills, I tend to agree with the doctor, it can conflate to their culture, but also I believe stems to education and economics. The reason, in such societies in rural areas where it’s very culturally right-wing conservative, there are such traditions of polygamy, and early-marriages that stems to a mediocre education and mediocre job/career skills for employment? One man’s view but that’s how I see it after reading it, compare that to urban areas, where the traditions are different from rural communities in Arab and Muslim nations.

Sean R. on May 12, 2015 at 3:22 pm

Polygamy was given up by other societies for a reason, which usually predated the findings of medical science.

Worry on May 12, 2015 at 5:03 pm

Yet another reason not to join the male auxillaries of the Criminal Licensed Islamist Terrorist Organization Radicalizing Intellectual Support group, like every polygamous Muslim male is.

Occam's Tool on May 12, 2015 at 8:35 pm

Cool!!! At least one good thing about Islamic polygamy, as practiced in dar ul Islam

Infidel on May 12, 2015 at 9:42 pm

Occam, I really LOVE your acronym 🙂

Infidel on May 12, 2015 at 9:45 pm

    Technically, Occam’s created a “backronym”–and it’s a good one. The distinction between a backronym and an acronym, is that the former selects words to fit the desired shorthand name.

    Another example of a backronym is the US Patriot Act, which is, officially, “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001.” The name for this particular Act is Orwellian.

    A good example of an acroynm–or at least I think it’s an acronym–is the military expression “Snafu”: “Situation normal all fuc–d up.”

    Ralph Adamo on May 13, 2015 at 1:02 pm

Today Mike Church today was talking about the new “Freedom” act. He said it was:

“United and Strengthening America by Fulfilling Rights and Ending Eavesdropping, Dragnet-collection, and Online Monitoring.”

Did anybody hear it?

The photo is a good one.

Yes, but with 4+ wives they reproduce at a faster rate than that at what they get coronary disease. Ever wondered why is it that there are over 1,500 million muslims polluting planet earth?
