Researchers examined data from the Vietnam Era Twin Registry and found that military veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder had an almost twofold higher risk of developing heart disease than those without PTSD. Imaging analyses found nearly twice as many areas of reduced blood flow to the heart in patients with PTSD compared with those without the condition. The findings appeared online in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
