When sports can kill you...

Looking forward to the SuperBowl?

Researchers recently showed that German men had three times the number of heart problems on the days when there were big soccer World Cup matches and Germany played. The closer and more exciting the games, the more heart attacks they found.

My advice?

We all know a dear family member with a cardiac risk factor or two. If you have a loved one who is going to be watching the big game this weekend, slip him (or her) an aspirin before the game. Tell him it's to prevent a hangover. It may just prevent a heart cath.
