A new study has revealed that there is something life-threatening for men in the summer, which is that men in their early sixties are more likely to develop heart disease, such as dying on a warm summer night.
And according to timesofindia, a 1°C rise on the summer-night SAT was significantly associated with a 3.1% increased risk of cardiovascular disease among men aged 60 to 64, but not older men or women of any age.
The population-based study, a monthly time series (June-July, 2001-2015) analysis of sex-specific cardiovascular mortality in England and Wales for adults aged 60-64 and 65-69, continued that the population in Middle-aged to elderly people are generally more susceptible to intravascular volume depletion when exposed to heat, with consequent hypotension, thrombocytosis, and hyperlipidemia, and this maladaptation, often exacerbated by sedentary behavior and disrupted sleep, may or insufficient, to make men more susceptible than women to CVD events when exposed to abnormally high mean surface air temperatures in summer.
The researchers studied data from the Office for National Statistics on nearly 40,000 heart-related deaths for the months of June and July of each year between 2001 and 2015 in England and Wales because heat waves are more intense in these areas during these months. Cardiovascular disease kills nearly 18 million people each year.
According to the World Health Organization reports, 17.9 million people die from cardiovascular diseases, and this constitutes 32% of all deaths. Cardiovascular diseases include coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, rheumatic heart disease and other conditions, about a third of deaths that occur due to heart disease Aneurysms occur prematurely in people younger than 70 years old.
The study reveals: “While high blood pressure, high blood glucose, high blood lipids, overweight and obesity are the main risk factors for disease, tobacco consumption, alcohol abuse, and increased salt intake are a few factors that contribute to the increased risk. associated with cardiovascular disease”.
For cardiovascular disease symptoms, the most common symptoms are related to breathing, chest, heartbeat, and fatigue. During a heart attack, a person experiences numbness of the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body, confusion, dizziness and/or loss of balance or coordination.
