The World Cup and Your Heart
I Love the World Cup but be careful out there.... according to a NEJM article:
Cardiovascular Events during World Cup Soccer
Conclusion: "Viewing a stressful soccer match more than doubles the risk of an acute cardiovascular event. In view of this excess risk, particularly in men with known coronary heart disease, preventive measures are urgently needed."
Thank you NEJM, but I really didn't need a study to know this!!!! But now we have proof that the World Cup is a "Heart Breaker"! - Dr. B
