Dominica News And From Around The Caribbean

Certain vulnerable people can have potentially deadly heart rhythms triggered by anger or other powerful emotions, U.S. researchers have found.

Previous studies have shown stressors such as war or World Cup losses can cause cardiac arrest.

Dr. Rachel Lampert of Yale studied 62 people being treated for arrhythmia and found that when they recounted episodes from their lives that angered them, electrical instability in the heart increased.

Lampert said her study shows that “yes, anger really does impact the heart’s electrical system in very specific ways that can lead to sudden death.” She said people with healthy hearts are “likely very different.”

============My Personal Opinion============

This is just another useless study. Can we please just say that stress can cause heart problems? Most of us can comprehend that strong emotions will cause stress and do not need multiple studies on the same thing disguised as viable research. Stop dumping down science and spending our money!

Have your say: – Do you think getting angry can kill you? I’m curious to hear the different opinions in the comments below.
