The University of Cambridge has published a global review of 48 studies that has found that more than 60 million people in the EU are affected by anxiety disorders, with women and young people affected the most.
Whilst they estimate that four out of every hundred people are affected by anxiety, the review said much more research was required, particularly to ascertain the risk to other communities.
