New research finds that anger could cause cardiovascular problems

New research from Harvard shows that angry outbursts can contribute to an increased risk of a person having cardiovascular problems, such as a heart attack or stroke.
Harvard School of Public Health researchers, led by Dr. Elizabeth Mostofsky, found that people are at five times more of a risk to have a heart attack within two hours after being enraged, and three times the risk of having a stroke compared to people who are usually calm. Additionally, people who are angry frequently – about five times per day – were much more likely to suffer health problems.
Researchers stated that, though they don’t know why exactly this is the case, when people are angry, their heart rate increases, as does their vascular resistance and blood pressure.
Unfortunately, an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes has also been linked to the use of Yasmin and Yaz birth control pills.
