Stress – find out what causes a heart attack and what stressful situations are – AuraJuly 25, 2020
Stress forces people to live at a deadly pace. Are you among them?
Stress creeps up on you without you being aware of it. And when you realize that, it may be too late! Can you prevent the worst?
If you want to check if you are among the “vulnerable” people who may die, answer the questions from this test.
Most people who are threatened with a heart attack are not even aware that they strain their mind and body to the point that they cannot withstand it on a daily basis.
This is why it is said that some people live at a “deadly pace” and are not even aware that stress is slowly eating away at them.
American physician, renowned heart disease specialist Dr. R. Rosenman claims:
“Lifestyle is the main reason why heart disease is the biggest ‘killer’ of citizens of developed countries.”
These people are constantly on the move, and when they rest physically, their mind behaves as if it is still at work!
They are constantly thinking about what they did wrong, worrying about what will happen tomorrow, planning…
Because their mind is not at rest, many people lack energy and constantly feel tired and exhausted.
Stress and heart disease
Dr. Rosenman met with Dr. Friedman investigated whether there are certain types of people who behave this way and are therefore more susceptible to heart disease than others.
They chose a group of 80 people who never had enough time to do whatever they wanted.
Also, in doing so, they had a strong urge to be successful at work.
Such people are, in their opinion, typical candidates for heart attack, and they have called them “type A”.
Stress was their way of life.
After that, they chose another, so-called control group of completely different people.
They all had enough free time and none of them had competitive qualities. They called them “type B”.
Analysis of the lives and health of both groups showed that type A people were seven times more likely to have a heart attack than type B people.
And their diet and living conditions were similar. so what’s the difference then?
No one from group B
Many doctors have done similar research to determine the causes of the disease in people who experience a heart attack.
For example, in the most developed U.S. state of California, researchers followed 3,500 volunteers aged 30 to 60 for ten years.
They were businessmen, employees of large banks and employees of airlines.
They divided them into equal groups, in one there were persons of type A, and in the other of type B.
After ten years, 250 volunteers from both groups suffered a heart attack.
But as many as 70 percent (175) of them were from type A group!
Of the people who died after a heart attack, none were from type B.
There are many other similar studies, and in most of them people belonging to group “A” are “destroyed” by stress faster and harder.
Make sure you are among them:
To check if you are a type A person, answer honestly the questions we post here with “yes” or “no”.
As in any test, if you lie, you will “cheat” only yourself!
