Angry People Live Longer

Last Updated on – Scientific studies show that being angry can be beneficial to your health. Holding in your anger and frustration can a bad thing. It might sound somewhat odd, but researchers claim that being hot-tempered and expressing your anger could be a key to enjoying a long and healthy life.

According to a study conducted by scientists at the University of Jena in Germany, hotheaded Italians and Spanish live almost two years longer than the cool English who “keep calm and carry on”.

The researchers were able to confirm this by studying 6,000 individuals. The found that people who internalized their anxiety suffered from an elevated pulse. Researchers say that over time, raised pulse can result in high blood pressure and increase a person’s risk of developing a wide range of conditions from heart disease to cancer, kidney damage and more.

On the other hand, we should not forget that people with chronic anger can also develop coronary disease.

The researchers concluded that “men with moderate levels of anger expression had nearly half the risk of nonfatal heart attacks and a significant reduction in the risk of stroke compared to men with low levels of anger expression.

So, perhaps moderate anger is the solution that will improve your health.
