Default Risk for Heart Attack or Stroke Increases After Anger Outburst

This goes with the hypothesis of some researchers that stress is the mayor contributor to CVD.


Story at-a-glance

When a person is angry, their risk of heart attack increases by nearly five-fold and their risk of stroke by more than three-fold in the two hours following an angry outburst (compared to when they are not angry)

The risk was even greater among those who had a history of heart problems or frequent episodes of anger

Intense emotions like anger trigger a cascade of physical reactions, including increases in stress hormones, heart rate, arterial tension, and blood pressure, prompting changes in blood flow that encourage blood clots and trigger inflammation

While negative emotions may harm your heart, a positive outlook has been linked to a one-third lower risk of cardiac events
