In winter, there are many health complications such as common cold, sore throat, flu and other seasonal diseases, but the most important and dangerous issue is heart disease.
In fact, as the temperature drops, the blood vessels narrow, which increases the risk of stroke or heart attack.
According to experts, due to the narrowing of the arteries in winter, the vessels that supply blood to the heart muscles also shrink, which causes severe pain in the chest, which is a trigger for heart attack or heart disease.
According to a new study, heart attack and cardiovascular problems are more common in winter, especially in the early morning when the cold is felt more.
The question arises as to why heart disease problems are more common in winter. In this regard, experts say that in winter, the heart has to pump the same amount of blood as it normally does, but it requires more and harder work, which results in increased blood pressure and narrowing of the arteries. It causes problems like heart attack.
According to experts, outside body temperature has an inverse relationship with blood pressure, which causes the heart to work harder to pump blood due to the narrowing of the arteries in winter.
Blood has to be transported to distant parts of the body such as skin, legs and other organs. Apart from this, blood clotting is another problem in cold weather and all these are compounded risk.
