People are more likely to die in the winter, regardless of the temperature outside, the analysis showed
Accepted that a warmer climate has a positive impact on human health. However, according to the work of Good Samaritan Hospital, the climate is not that important. Man in any case more likely to die from a heart attack in the winter, writes The Daily Mail.
Scientists made this conclusion by comparing the dates of death of people living in warm and cold parts of the state (taking into account the information from California, Texas , Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts). It turned out there was almost no difference.
In general, the overall mortality and cause heart problems or stroke, increased by 26-36% in the winter than in summer. These fluctuations were observed regardless of the local climatic conditions.
So, its not a low temperature, says the head of research, Brian Schwartz of the University of New Mexico. In his view, people can get used to the local climate changes, even if they moved in, and for them the distinction of winter and summer temperatures are beginning to play an important role.
Plus, the winter flu has burst. This is another risk factor for death. As proven, the high prevalence of respiratory infections adversely affect the statistics of deaths from heart problems.
