Men who vented their anger fared better, heart-wise.
Researchers followed 2,755 men, none of whom had ever suffered a heart attack.
According to Reuters Health, researchers also found that when men had an immediate, "covert" response to conflict in the workplace, their risk of heart attack or heart-related death increase six-fold. The two "covert" responses were walking away or staying silent.
The study is published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
