Don’t be angry…It’ll weaken your heart

Don’t be angry…It’ll weaken your heart

Do not become angry for every small issue. Do not become anxious about what you are doing or what you intend to do. A new study at the University of Pittsburgh shows that those who become angry or anxious easily are more prone to inflammatory diseases like cardiovascular ailments than others. People with high levels of stress always experience chronic health problems.

The study states that most people show increases in heart rate and blood pressure when they complete a stressful task , but some also show increases in a circulating marker of inflammation known as interleukin-6. Inflammation is a process by which the body’s white blood cells protect us from infection and foreign substances such as bacteria and viruses. Individuals who become angry or anxious when confronting relatively minor challenges in their lives are prone to increases in inflammation. Over a period of time, this may render the emotionally-reactive persons more vulnerable to inflammatory diseases, such as cardiovascular disease.
