Subject: Study shows the way stress may harm your heart
Psychological stress has been proven to have a huge impact on the health of your heart, as well as your blood pressure levels. During the trial period, they found that several testers who had PTSD suffered heart problems and even stroke during the follow-up period. Amygdala has been discovered to increase cardiac problems and raise chances of having a cardiac episode. Doctors will continue to research this and decide what measures to take in the future to help keep heart conditions and stress levels under control
- Scientists may have uncovered a biological explanation for the long suspected link between stress and heart disease: the amygdala in the brain.
- Those who reported the highest stress levels had the highest levels of amygdala activity along with more signs of inflammation in their blood and the walls of their arteries.
- With increasing numbers of people suffering from job or social stress, doctors may have to include it when they assess an individual's risk for cardiovascular disease.
