Scientific research shows that cynical people are more likely to have a heart attack than those who get angry in stressful situations

The research belongs to Baylor University. The scientists studied the different reactions of people to stressful situations.

Each person has a different reaction to the situations they generate stress. In addition, each one assumes or internalizes it in a different way. There are those who explode in a anger and become aggressive and there are those who express an attitude cynical. This concept is the result of an investigation of the Baylor University. Who also used the results to determine the risks that a person suffers from suffering a heart attack or heart attack.

First, the study clarifies that stress, for mental and cardiac health, is as detrimental as sobesity, smoking, and high cholesterol. So there is born the need to know the way in which each person assumes it.

Immediately the scientists in charge of the investigation, reveal the results and assure that they are conclusive. In an environment that generates stress, the cynic has a greater risk of suffering a heart attack. Unlike the one who gets angry and expresses an aggressive response. Then later they explain the reasons.

Stress and your reaction

The study reveals that those who explode in anger, when they re-live a similar scenario, react in a much calmer way. You lose the novelty of what made you angry in the past. And they take the same situation in a different way, that is, less stress level, reviews Daily Mail.

While, those who react cynically maintain the same level of stress in the face of repeated scenarios. A situation that affects heart health and increases the risk of a heart attack.

« When you’re exposed to the same thing multiple times, the novelty of that situation wears off. You don’t have an answer as big as the first time. This is a healthy response, » says Alexandra Tyra, a doctoral student in psychology and neuroscience at the University of Baylor, Texas.

While, in cynics, « it is not healthy because it increases the pressure on our cardiovascular system over time, » he said.
