A new study says post traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, could bring on cardiovascular disease and cancer. In 2017, the National Institutes of Health estimated that 3.6 percent of adults in the United States had PTSD in the previous year. According to UPI, the longer a person has PTSD from any traumatic event, the higher their risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The study also reported that PTSD brought on by terrorist attacks was connected to a higher prevalence of cancer. Andrea Pozza is a researcher at Santa Maria alle Scotte University Hospital. Researcher Andrea Pozza says the intentional infliction of harm on the victim causes a dysregulated stress response. More so, Pozza says, than harm arising from accidents or natural disasters.
