Heart Attack Risk Higher During Christmas Time: What Is Behind Spike in Cardiac Deaths During the Holidays?

For many years scientists blamed the weather for the increased rate of heart attacks in the United States during the Christmas season, but new research shows that rather than weather, a combination of things including poor diet, stress and alcohol consumption may be to blame, Tech Times reports.

It’s possible to have a heart attack even if you eat right and exercise, but such cases are the exception rather than the rule. The facts are that diet and exercise habits can predict your heart attack risk. If you want to reduce your risk of a heart attack, you should absolutely pay attention to your diet and exercise habits. These, along with four other habits, were said to basically make young women "heart attack-proof," according to research published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Besides diet and exercise, those other good habits include having a normal body fat percentage, watching television seven or fewer hours a week, limiting alcohol and not smoking. You can actually eat your way to a healthier heart with foods and certain nutrients including B vitamins, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), magnesium, vitamin K2, vitamin D and animal-based omega-3.

Recent research also suggests switching to the Paleo diet for at least eight weeks can benefit your heart. The Paleo Diet focuses on eating like a “caveman” from the Paleolithic period: Lean meat, seafood, fresh fruit and non-starchy vegetables are its foundation. My updated nutrition plan also allows whole, raw dairy products and also includes fermented vegetables for gut health and a focus on replacing excess grains and proteins with healthful sources of fat.
