Stress Gene Linked Heart Attacks
2013-12-19 12:03:34

Rebekah Eliason for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online A new study from Duke reveals that the genetic trait responsible for predisposing some people to strong stress reactions may also cause the risk of heart attack or death to rise by 38 percent. This discovery provides a new biological explanation for why some people are inclined towards cardiovascular disease. Since in these cases the disease is linked to stress, the findings suggest that behavior modification and drug therapies...
