Anger is a natural emotional response to threat, hurt, frustration and loss. It can be a survival tool, as a vital means of releasing a build-up of emotional pressure. But anger is also a dangerous force. Uncontrolled fury can lead to rash words, violence and destructiveness, while repressed rage can result in bitterness, stress, misery and guilt. Both extremes can damage health. Gael Lindenfield explains the effects of anger on our minds and bodies, and suggests ways of dealing both with our own anger and that of other people.
