Doctors at Duke University Medical Center have documented a connection between fluctuations in the stock market and heart attack frequency. Mona Fuizat, who presented the research at this year’s annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology noted that when stocks dropped, the number of heart attacks increased. When stocks rose, there were fewer heart attacks. Results of this investigation appear to be similar to those of other studies and confirm the link between environmental stressors and cardiovascular events.
