Evidence has established a link between emotions and health but this link is not yet understood. The Deadly Emotions reviews this complex topic through the integration and interpretation of current research. Johnson suggests a potentially deadly role for anger, hostility, and aggression (AHA syndrome) in several health problems including heart disease, cancer, ulcers, and hypertension. He also explores the relationship between AHA syndrome and psychological problems such as depression, chronic stress, smoking, drinking, and child/spouse abuse.
