Study linked recurring stress to heart attacks

Posted on Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014 at 10:47 am by Williams Hart    

A study by scientists at the Harvard Medical School recently suggested why recurring stress can result in heart attacks, a TIME article stated on June 22.

According to the study’s co-author Matthias Nahrendorf, white blood cells are produced in excess when an individual is under stress, but its constant overproduction can cause heart problems. The white blood cells become lodged on artery walls, resulting in irregular blood flow and eventually leading to clotting. Though the researchers connected chronic stress and heart attacks, other factors like high cholesterol, genetic traits, and smoking also largely influence the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases.

In addition to unhealthy behaviors like smoking, simply the ingestion of birth control pills like Yasmin or Yaz can increase the risk of women suffering from heart problems and severe blood clots. If you have been adversely affected by these pills’ dangerous side effects, the lawyers at Williams Hart may represent you to hold drug makers responsible.
