a new study finds people who have high levels of stress in their life face an increased risk for stroke.

the study by researchers in spain compared stroke patients to a random sample of healthy adults.

they found those who experienced chronic stress -- for six months or more -- were significantly more likely to have a stroke.

also, people with type "a" personalities -- meaning they had a quick temper and were impatient -- had an increased risk.
