Hostility Can Lead to Weight Gain in Men

A recent study conducted in the United Kingdom found that hostile men were more likely to gain weight as they got older.  The study followed over 6,400 men and women for 19 years.  At the onset of the study both men and women with higher hostility levels were more likely to be overweight.  Hostile men demonstrated greater weight gain over time than women and men with lower hostility levels. 

Anger has previously been linked to a higher risk for heart disease and strokes. The results of this current study stress the importance of controlling anger to improve overall health.  It is important for both men and women to control their stress and anger levels.  Identify what your stressors are and develop routines that help relieve your stress and help you relax.
