Even brief anger can be dangerous to your health

Anger is a natural response to injustice, but there are all kinds of health risks that come from the emotion. I think that in the majority of situations, we benefit by tempering our anger.

“When adults became angry after remembering past experiences, the function of cells lining the blood vessels was negatively impaired, which may restrict blood flow, according to a new study. Previous research has found that this may increase the risk of heart disease and stroke. In this study, episodes of anxiety and sadness did not trigger the same change in functioning of the blood vessel lining.”
