Anger management: An important message to protect your heart

A recent publication adds nicely to the accumulating evidence base that mental well-being has a significant impact on cardiovascular health.

Intense acute emotional states, particularly anger, substantially increase the risk of cardiac events.

In this study, 280 apparently healthy adults were recruited. It is experimentally demonstrated that approximately 30 minutes after provocation of anger an abnormal endothelial response appears. Apparently a hormonal-mediated effect causes a hazardous injury to the vessels.

Consequently, individuals who frequent erupt with anger have possibly chronically damaged vessels and are susceptible to cardiovascular events.
