Many times in life we get angry to the point of feeling his face red and palpitations as possible, but when this happens we often can be very harmful to our health. Anger and other strong emotions can trigger potentially deadly heart rhythms for people who are especially vulnerable, according to a new study.
In a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, researchers from the U.S. found that anger-induced changes can lead to arrhythmias in patients with implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD).
Although previous research has shown an increase in sudden cardiac death in times of stress (such as earthquakes and war), this study provides the first evidence that the changes caused by anger and other strong emotions can predict arrhythmias that can cause cardiac arrest.
"It's an important study because we are beginning to understand how anger and other mental stress can trigger potentially lethal ventricular arrhythmias, especially among patients with structural heart abnormalities," says study leader, Rachel Lampert, MD, associate professor of the Yale University School of Medicine .
Anger, when expressed properly, can actually have its benefits. Experts say that can help protect us from dangerous situations, gives us energy to solve problems, and can even lead to social and cultural reforms.

Methods for controlling anger many, but you can count to 10 and from doing much exercise. If you're happy, it will be less likely to explode in any situation, as your willingness to face difficulties will be much better. You can practice yoga or do some activity that relaxes you.
