NEW YORK (CBS NEWS) - Can losing your cool be good for you? According to a new German study, people who express their anger live two years longer, on average, than those who bottle up their rage.

After analyzing 6,000 patients, researchers found that those who internalized their angry feelings ran the risk of an elevated pulse, high blood pressure and other serious ailments.
