New study suggests that people who do not vent out their anger are more likely at a risk to have a heart attack. So, people who lose their calm often are more likely at risk of cardiac arrests.
The researchers assessed nine trials and suggested that within two hours of a severe anger outburst, a person’s risk of heart attack increases nearly five-fold, while the chances of having a stroke rise three-fold.
According to researchers pent up anger can produce physiological tensions, which increases the blood pressure resulting in damage to the heart.
However, more study needs to be conducted to come up with effective interventions to prevent heart attacks.
