February is American Heart Month. Heart disease is the leading cause of disability (Stats: accounting for 1 in 4 deaths in the United States).
A recent study published in THE LANCET shows a connection between stress and cardiovascular disease.
“Our results provide a unique insight into how stress may lead to cardiovascular disease. This raises the possibility that reducing stress could produce benefits that extend beyond an improved sense of psychological wellbeing,” said lead author Dr Ahmed Tawakol, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, USA. “Eventually, chronic stress could be treated as an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease, which is routinely screened for and effectively managed like other major cardiovascular disease risk factors.” Reference
