The article studied 1623 men and women, to assess the amount and timing of anger in people’s lives. These researchers were able to find a direct relationship between anger and Development with a heart attack.
In another study of anger (Circulation, May 2000), 12 986 people who have done more anger were twice as likely to suffer a heart attack, dies, or need for angioplasty or bypass surgery compared with those who were less angry.
In fact, anger is not just an emotional issue. What really can be dangerous to our health.
