Are you bitter and resentful? Cut that out!

If you know someone who plays the blame game on a regular basis – they could be in for some real health issues...

Blamers tend to be either bitter or resentful – and Carsten Wrosch, one of the authors of the new book “Embitterment,” says feeling bitter interferes with the body’s hormonal and immune systems. He says studies have shown that bitter, angry people have higher blood pressure and heart rates and are more likely to die of heart disease and other illnesses.

We’re all prone to resentment or anger from time to time – but people who feel that way long term keep their bodies primed to fight – and that can take a huge toll on the heart and overall well-being in the long run.
