Snowfall more likely to kill men

(ORDO NEWS) — There are many factors that have a negative impact on a person. It turns out that one of them is snowfall.

Yes, yes, you were not mistaken when you read the word “snowfall”. It turned out that men are more likely to become victims of a heart attack, which can lead to death, in those moments when there is a heavy snowfall.

This statement was made by Canadian scientists from the University of Montreal. When compared with periods when there is no snow, the risk of a heart attack increases by 16 percent and death from an attack by 34 percent if at least 20 centimeters of snow fall, the researchers say. But these findings do not apply to women.

The experts examined the health data of 128,073 men and women hospitalized and 68,155 deaths from heart attacks that occurred in Quebec from 1981 to 2014.

As a result of the analysis of the information, it turned out that a third of heart attacks occurred the day after the snowfall. And about 10% occurred when at least 5 centimeters of snow fell.

If the snowfall lasted at least a day, then men were eight percent more likely to end up in the hospital with a heart attack and 12 percent more likely to die.

The researchers suggested that snow removal undermines the health of men if they use a conventional shovel. People over 50 years of age who lead a sedentary lifestyle and have heart problems are also at particular risk.
