Episodes of anger are capable of triggering the onset of acute heart attack and aspirin can reduce this risk said Padma Shri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India & National Vice President Elect IMA.
Angry people who can not control their anger should ask their doctors to consider taking aspirin.
Quoting a Harvard study Dr Aggarwal said that Doctors at the Deaconess Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, interviewed 1623 patients (501 women) an average of 4 days after a heart attack.
The onset anger scale identified 39 patients with episodes of anger in the 2 hours before the onset of heart attack. The relative risk of heart attack in the 2 hours after an episode of anger was 23.
Regular users of aspirin had a significantly lower relative risk (1.4) than nonusers (2.9).
Anger in response to stress is also of particular importance for the development of premature heart attack in young men. An episode of anger may also trigger an acute heart attack in the next 2 hours.
