If you don't feel secure in your relationships, your heart may suffer -- literally.

Canadian researchers studied data from more than 5,000 adults. They found those who tended to worry about rejection had a higher risk of developing many health problems. They include heart-related problems such as stroke, heart attack and high blood pressure.

The study is published in the journal Health Psychology.
