Snow Shoveling Increases the Risk of Heart Attack in Men
A new Canadian study suggests that men might be under the increased risk of heart attack after major snowstorms due to snow shoveling.
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.
Previous studies have associated snow shoveling to the increased risk of heart attacks after snow storms. The current study provides a fresh insight into this connection having examined several decades of health data for patients hospitalized in Quebec, Canada.
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.”
