Canadian study suggests men are weak


2017-02-14 02:43:43
A recent study in Canada revealed that heavy snowfall increases heart attack risk for men. And even without going into details, one can make an educated guess why it might be so, especially considering women aren't affected at all by heavy snowfall.

According to the study the chance of getting a heart attack increases 16 percent after a heavy snowfall (at least 20 cm), as does the chance of dying from the heart attack (34 percent more likely).

The educated guess? Men today are not in a good enough physical shape to handle the snowfalls.

"We found that both the quantity and duration of snowfall were associated with an increased risk of heart attack for men but not women. It may be that men shovel more than women, particularly after heavy snowfalls. It is also possible that men put more effort into shoveling, and have a tendency to overdo it." Dr. Nathalie Auger of the University of Montreal said to Reuters.

For the study hospital data of more than 125 000 admissions was examined.

While the creators of the study didn't really have the data to say whether the men actually did any shoveling at all, to The Cheers team the results seem sort of obvious. On average men are too weak for shoveling these days.
