Take away the emotional mayhem associated with anger and rage. Forget about the mental health roller-coaster anger take us on.  Now only focus on what anger is causing: not the embittered feelings fury provokes.

Think about what affect anger can do to us? No, not the blowing up and boiling over part. The toll on our physical health is shocking. It is shameful, horrifyingly appalling…and shocking enough to make me scream bloody murder!

Anger and or rage, it’s connected to physical problems even chronic illness such as stress, high blood pressure, respiratory trouble, affects the liver and the pancreas, and not to mention all the digestive problems linked to anger.
