Nagging by a partner significantly increases the risk of angina almost fourfold, says a study, published yesterday in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health. Dealing with worries about family and children doubles the risk of angina. Arguing regularly with a partner increased the risk of angina by 44% while frequent arguments with a neighbor boosted the chances by 60%.

According to researchers, one reason for this could be the stress levels that rise due to the demands from family members. But individual personality can also play a role. The study involved more than 4,500 Danish men and women with no history of heart disease. They were asked several questions about their health and quality of relationships with other people. The results revealed that demands from a partner increased the risk of angina. Results were similar for men and women. Risk was higher for older people. Chances of angina increased with increase of pressure. Previous studies have found that people have better health if they are happy in their social relationships.
