Being Angry or Stressed while Exercising Can Lead to a Heart Attack
The study was conducted by the Population Health Research Institute at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, including 12,461 people suffering the first heart attack in 52 countries with average age 58, and three-fourth of them were men.
Having finished their study, the scientists concluded that being angry or stressed doubled the risk of suffering heart attack symptoms within 1 hour, physical exertion did the same. Having both at the same time increased the risk of heart attack for more than three times.
Barry Jacobs, a psychologist at the Crozer-Keystone Health System in suburban Philadelphia and an American Heart volunteer, who was not involved in the study says: “This study is further evidence of connection between mind and body. When you’re angry, that’s not the time to go out and chop a stack of wood.”
