An American study published in the journal showed that stress can be devastating for someone who already has heart disease gamma.

In the study, which involved 1,000 people who had had a heart attack or had persistent chest spasms, test subjects had to take a fitness test by cycling, and a stress test by giving a speech in front of a group of unknown people. . During both tests, it was measured whether stress leads to a lack of oxygen in the heart, or ischemia, according to reports. Science Radio.

The researchers then followed the people for five minutes to see if physical activity or mental stress was affecting the heart.

It turns out that people who had a lack of oxygen in the heart due to mental stress and physical exertion were more likely to have another heart attack or die.

If you’re such a person who doesn’t handle stress well or if you have low-level stress, you also have an increased risk of heart complications, says Stephen James, professor of cardiology at Uppsala University, Fitnskapsradion.

He believes that the worst stresses are those that mean that people cannot have the opportunity to make a decision about their lives.

The reason may be that they are out of work, have poor financial resources, have an uncertain situation or may not know Swedish. Stefan James says these patients are the hardest hit.
