Was Heart Attack Caused By Criminal Investigation?

The failure to handle lawsuit stress -- or the stress of an ongoing criminal investigation -- can have major health consequences. An interesting Albany Times-Union story out of the Capital District region of New York today, where a stockbroker and his firm "are the subject of parallel probes" by the Securities and Exchane Commission and the U.S. Attorney's Office in Albany, and the broker reportedly suffered a heart attack from the probes. 

It is hard to conclude -- without more evidence -- that there is a causal connection, but being sued or investigated can be infuriating and highly stressful. The failure to cope properly can weaken your ability to withstand the scrutiny and destroy your ability to fight.
