New research by the University of Leeds has found that the more broken the door, the more likely it is to be a broken window.
The study, which involved over 20,000 people, found that people who reported having broken windows were significantly more likely than those who did not to have broken doors.
However, those with broken windows also had more common physical problems, such as broken hinges, than those with non-broken windows.
Professor Sarah Erskine-Beaumont, who led the research, said: “The more broken we break the door the more often we are left with a broken glass.”
People who break windows tend to be the people who are left feeling most vulnerable, and that is something that we need to think about as a society.
We also know that people with broken glass tend to have more chronic conditions than those without.””
The fact that broken glass is a more common problem is a testament to how easily broken glass can be, especially in an era of modern technology,” Professor Ersky said.
“We also know that people with broken glass tend to have more chronic conditions than those without.”
The researchers, who used data from the General Social Survey, compared people’s attitudes to broken windows with their behaviour towards broken glass in relation to other kinds of damage.
Professor Erski said:”In our study, we found that breaking windows was the most common form of breakage, but it is not the only one.”
Breaking windows also accounted for most of the incidents of broken windows.
“While broken windows account for most broken windows, they are not the most dangerous form of damage to the house.”
She said it was important to remember that the majority of the victims of broken glass were women and children, and had a lower risk of death than their male counterparts.
“If broken windows are not seen as a significant problem, then people might not be aware of the fact that breaking glass is also a cause of injury and death.”
Professor Ekski added: “As we age, our bodies begin to break down, so we become more susceptible to breakage and damage, so breaking windows is a risk factor for future injuries.”
In the study, the researchers also analysed the responses of 3,000 adults from across England.
They found that those with more broken windows had more physical problems and more common chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes.
