Newly published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, a study by the Hospital Clinico Universitario San Carlos researchers in Madrid has suggested that people should have control over their aggressiveness or irritation or they may tend to suffer a stroke at a stage.
Ana Maria Garcia, MD, and colleagues say that one should work on his type A personality traits if he feels he has. These traits may include short-temperedness or annoyance and even naturally hostile.
While one may not realize, these kinds of behaviours keep on doing their duty that is to increase one’s risk of getting a stroke. Though, it would not be something new if it is said that stress can lead to a heart attack. It is for the first time that the same has been directly linked to the chances of occurrence of strokes.
150 people of around 54 years in age, who had suffered strokes, were recruited by the team with some 300 people without the same selected on random basis. Examining them for alcohol use, smoking history and coffee or energy drink use, the team concluded that stress was only responsible for strokes. Since, no one had an illness causing the same.
“People can lower their stroke risk by attempting to reduce the stress in their lives”, Garcia suggested.
