Get angry? Get heart disease too

Filed under: ,

It seems road rage may be more dangerous than just the risk of a traffic accident or blown temper -- a new study shows that hostility, anger, and depression can significantly increase a person's chances of developing heart disease or suffering a heart attack. It seems that psychological factors, like anger, can push up inflammation levels over time, which have been proven to contribute to heart health issues. Now scientists will begin evaluating whether interventions like meditation and anger management can decrease the risk. So be ready angry heart patients, you may have therapy sessions and anger management in their futures!
