Depression, Hostility Associated With Higher Stroke Risk In Middle-Aged, Older Adults

AFP (7/11) reports that research published in Stroke suggests that “feeling cynical and hostile toward others may double the risk of having a stroke in middle-aged and older adults.” The study also indicated that “depression and high stress increased stroke risk.” The study included “more than 6,700 adults aged 45 to 84” who “answered questionnaires about their state of mind and behavior.” Participants were followed for eight to 11 years.
