This is so wild - apparently there are THREE days most people have heart attacks and they're coming up within a few weeks! This is your sign to take care of yourself and try and keep calm this holidays season so that you can try and avoid it as much as you can.
- December 25 – more cardiac deaths occur on this day than any other day of the year
- December 26 – second most cardiac deaths occur
- January 1 – third most cardiac deaths occur
Dr. Mich Elkind, Chief Clinical Science Officer for the American Heart Association said
“We see every year during the winter months, in the cold months, that there’s about a 10% or more increase in the rate of fatal cardiovascular events, things like heart attacks and cardiac arrest when the heart stops beating altogether, But on top of that, right at Christmas and New Year’s, there’s a further, about 5%, increase in risk of those events.”
