Menopausal women who bump into their emotions run a greater risk of having a stroke.
New research has shown that they tend to have more swollen neck arteries than women who express their feelings.
This can increase their chance of a potentially devastating stroke, because pieces & # 39; plaque & # 39; can break away and remain in the brain, causing a blockage.
The study, which looked at 304 middle-aged women, suggests that occasionally expressing feelings – rather than roaring silently with anger – might be a lifesaver.

The Pittsburgh University and Chicago University team discovered that "self-shedding was associated with larger carotid artery," the two carotid arteries being those that carry blood from the heart to the brain.
The finding was true even after taking into account other factors that could skew the results, such as age, weight, cholesterol levels and depression, with "self-shedding" women having 14 percent more chance of carotid plaque.
Pittsburgh University psychologist Karen Jakubowski said such women "may experience more stress, especially in their intimate relationships." As a result, they can produce higher levels of stress hormones such as cortisol, or suffer from increased chronic inflammation, both of which are linked to the development of arterial plaques.

Georgina Hill, of the Stroke Association, insisted to be careful with the findings and added: “There are things you can do to reduce your risk of stroke, such as having your blood pressure checked and healthy changes in your daily routine. bring life. A stroke can affect anyone at any time. & # 39;
