Late nights, excessive drinking and snacking are not good for heart health.

MED talks with Dr KK Aggarwal

Watching late night competitive sports

Watching the World Cup can kill you if you indulge in late nights, beer, bad food and end up with  roller coaster excitement via triggering a heart attack. It is especially risky for men with an underlying heart blockages when watching their favourite teams, studies suggest – but winning ways could have an unexpected bonus for society.

Staying up late for games, lounging on a sofa for hours and snacking on fast food loaded with salt, fats and carbs all put more stress on the heart and affect blood pressure, not to mention the risk of a heart attack for soccer fans amid an emotional roller coaster as their teams battle it out in Russia.

Late nights, excessive drinking and snacking are not good for heart health.

During the 2002 World Cup, Hong Kong’s Queen Mary Hospital saw 22 admissions for acute cardiovascular events, while in the same period the following year there were 15 and in 2004 just 11.
