A new study organized at Sweden suggests that holidays tend to wreck havoc over one’s heart health. Christmas Eve tends to be one among the worst days in the entire year for people vulnerable to heart attacks. The risk factor ranks near about 40 percent. The research was rather specific with regards to these heart attacks stating that they occur mostly close to 10 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
This observational study actually analyzed the timings for 283,014 incidents of heart attacks that were reported to the Coronary Care Unit Registry at Sweden between the year 1998 and 2013. Another day which is related to the incidents of higher heart attack rates is the Midsummer. This is a holiday in Sweden that occurs somewhere around mid-June. Mornings just before the 8 a.m. ping and Mondays are the times with incidents for heart attacks.
Researchers also stated that the risk wasn’t as high during the sporting events and Easter holidays. People more that 75-years-old along with the ones diagnosed with diabetes or a history of the coronary artery issue were highly likely to suffer from heart attacks.
However, more research needs to be completed in order to determine the exact cause for heart attack spikes during holidays.
