    A recent study by researchers at McMaster University in Canada indicated that heavy exertion while angry or stressed triples the chance of a heart attack.

    The public was shocked (it shouldn’t have been) and angered (it should be) to learn last month that a half-century ago, the sugar industry paid Harvard scientists to produce a research paper, published in the esteemed New England Journal of Medicine.
