Anxiety In Teen Years Linked To Higher Risk Of Dying From Heart Attack Four Decades Later.

The Boston Globe (3/14, Weintraub) reported that research published online March 4 in the journal Heart indicated that “men who were anxious in their late teens were twice as likely to die from heart attacks four decades later.” The study, which involved 237,980 men, “confirms that anxiety can have lasting health effects and that people who are naturally high strung have to try harder than most to make themselves resilient to stress, said Scott Montgomery, the study’s lead author.”
