Medical researchers have found that the chances of having a heart attack increase as the temperature decreases.  In the winter months, it is important to look out for the symptoms of a heart attack.  The most common symptoms suffered include heartburn/indigestion, nausea, pain in the neck, arms, jaw or abdomen, sweating and tightness in the chest.

The chance of heart attack increase by 2 percent for every degree the temperature drops.  Results of the medical study were adjusted to account for other environmental causes including air pollution and influenza.  Doctors believe that the reason the chances of a heart attack rise during cold weather is due to the fact that blood thickness increases when the body is cold.  In addition, blood vessels narrow in cold temperatures.
