High levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) can be indication to heart attach even months before it really happens.
Some scientists from Canada investigated how problems in marriage, financial problems and problems at work can increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases, and they found out that there is a biological sign witch can predict a heart attack.
