High Blood Pressure Linked to Impatience
After following more than 3,000 men and women for 15 years, researchers found that impatient people are two to three times more likely than their more laid-back counterparts to develop high blood pressure, a risk factor for heart disease.
Noteworthy was the relatively young age (18 to 30) of the volunteers when the study began in 1985, meaning that a hurry-up attitude in your youth could lead to high blood pressure before middle age.
