Top Five Winter Health Hazards


At this point, for a lot of people, winter can't get any worse.  Anyone who's still looking for an excuse to go somewhere warm, check out these top five winter health hazards, from ABC News.
 
1.  Heart attacks and strokes.  People have more heart attacks in winter, and there are more deaths from stroke.  It might not be the cold temperatures.  It could just be that people are more stressed in general, or they're working too hard shoveling snow.
 
2.  Exposure.  Obviously, cold temperatures mean more frostbite and hypothermia.  You don't have to get stuck outside overnight to get in trouble.  You can get frostbite from scraping off your car if you're not dressed for it.
 
3.  Breaks and sprains.  More ice and snow means more people slipping and falling.  And a lot of the falls are worse because your feet slip all the way out from under you.
 
4.  Viruses.  The cold temperatures don't cause sickness by themselves.  But because everyone is indoors all the time, it's easier to catch whatever other people have.
 
5.  Depression.  Winter weather is dark and gloomy, and it gets to people.  Even happy people can struggle with it.  Sometimes more exposure to light can really help, even if it's not sunlight.
