Sex may not trigger heart attacks, strokes

NBC News reports that research suggests that “sex doesn’t seem to trigger heart attacks” or strokes. The findings were published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Investigators “questioned 536 heart disease patients aged between 30 and 70 years about their sexual activity before and after heart attacks, strokes and other types of sudden cardiovascular death.”

AFP reports that the investigators “concluded that sexual activity … was not a risk factor for subsequent adverse cardiovascular events.”
