Don’t Worry, Be Happy

22 09 2011

Being angry can not only annoy those around you, it really can break your heart. At the recent Heart Failure Society of America meeting the results of a study was presented that examined over 13,000 participants, both men and women. It found that “high levels of anger were associated with a greater risk of developing heart failure.” A study published earlier examined several smaller studies and concluded that higher levels of anger were also associated with a greater risk for the development of coronary artery disease. So partake of the ageless wisdom of Bobby McFerrin, “Don’t worry, Be happy.” It could help save your heart.

Very well said; my brother was telling me about his mentor (I think) at Houston’s medical school who had written a book on this topic.
