Your mood and sleep patterns could be making you more vulnerable. Here are 7 signs that you may be at risk for a heart attack.
7. Getting angry over nothing may increase your risk of heart attack
Anger could make you more likely to have a heart attack. Researchers at the University of Australia surveyed 313 participants who had had a heart attack. These participants were asked about their level of anger before their heart attack occurred. The researchers found that patients were 8.5 times more likely to have a heart attack within two hours of an intense angry episode, defined as “very angry, body tense, fists or teeth clenched.” So the more likely you are to get angry, the greater the chance that your health will be affected or that you will suffer a heart attack.
