Anger is stress and being stressed releases stress hormone called cortisol.
While short exposure, helps by giving a short burst of energy, prolong exposure leads to various physiological changes. There are various studies, that linked chronic anger to cardiac problems and neuron shrinkage. Learning anger-triggers, relaxation, taking care of self, will help you manage the effects of anger.
