Heart Disease Deaths: Why Christmas and New Year lead to more heart-related deaths
People who die during the holiday season were found to be younger in comparison to the people dying in the rest of the year. Several studies have found that more number of people tend to die of heart ailments around Christmas and New Year than the rest of the year. It was initially believed that this festive season lies in the coldest months of the year, which makes people more susceptible to heart issues related to cold and flu. But the researchers are yet to trace the exact reason behind it.
