Psychological Health, Well-Being, and the Mind-Heart-Body Connection: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association

>However, specific emotional experiences have distinct neurobiological and behavioral features, and they uniquely contribute to [Cardio Vascular Disease] risk

I'm a little iffy on "uniquely," as mental health is physical health, and there are other connections. The endocrine system jumps out. The mind and body are, like, fundamentally the same thing.

Glad people have been investigating this. Glad the American Heart Association is issuing evidence-backed guidance that cardiovascular specialists can't ignore mental health.

Poor mental health basically throws off hormones? Or is that too vague of a summary?
