The scientists compared periods with and without great snowfalls and found that men were 16% more likely to have a heart attack and 34% more likely to die from the condition.

Lead study Author Dr. Natalie Auger from the University of Montreal says: “We found that both the quantity and duration of snowfall were associated with an increased risk of heart attack for men but not women.”
