A recent study suggests that arguing can have a negative effect on the heart.
According to Chinese medicine, a bit of anger can benefit some people at certain times because it can increase heart energy. This also means that it can be harmful to those who already have excessive heart energy.
At the receiving end, stress (which Chinese medicine sees as worry and anxiety) can also benefit some people at certain times because it can tone down an overactive heart. By the same token, stress can harm people with a sluggish heart.
