JAMA needs 14 studies to find out what a South Dakotan in a driveway can tell ya


"An analysis of 14 previous heart studies in this week's Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that irregular bouts of physical activity can be a trigger for a heart attack or sudden death, while infrequent episodes of sexual activity increased the risk for just heart attacks. No studies looked at the association of sexual activity and sudden cardiac death."

Or as folks here have always warned me, there's a "heart attack season" when folks emerge from winter inactivity and overeating to shovel a bunch of heavy March snow.

My takeaway: Regular blizzards and regular love-making are good for your heart.

Yes! Not sure if the Madison School Board could guarantee those things but it would make for an exciting campaign platform!
