Question by galactic129: Is warm or cold weather good for the heart?
I read that people in northern countries have more heart disease. Does cold weather really influence the cardiovascular system, and, if so, how?
Answer by Tintin
Maybe it has nothing to do with the cold.
Perhaps their diet relies more on meat since they can’t grow food in the cold weather.
Thus, they have a fattier diet.
The only way I know cold affects blood vessels is by causing the ones nearer the skin to close off so that heat is not lost.
I don’t think the weather itself can affect the cardiovascular system, but it can be stressful for a person
