A point that I would like to make is that there appears to be some concensus that Type A personalities are at higher risk. While the definition of Type A personality is large, you should check your blood pressure if you have the following traits: ambitious, aggressive, business-like, controlling, highly competitive, impatient, preoccupied with his or her status, time-conscious. You can check out wikipedia for a more detailed explanation on Type A personalities.
