   Here’s a short article talking of some research that may be helpful to talk about with patients and clients

“Having a hot temper may increase your risk of having a heart attack or stroke, according to researchers.

…[R]age often precedes an attack and may be the trigger, say the US researchers who trawled medical literature.They identified a dangerous period of about two hours following an outburst when people were at heightened risk.

…[E]xperts know that chronic stress can contribute to heart disease, partly because it can raise blood pressure but also because people may deal with stress in unhealthy ways – by smoking or drinking too much alcohol, for example.”
