Putting Your All Into The Game

This Sunday, you'd be well advised to take a calm and detached approach to watching the big football game. German researchers found that male sports fans with known cardiovascular risk factors were twice as likely to suffer a heart attack while watching an important contest. Perhaps not coincidentally, their findings are published in the January 31st issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

The Bigger Picture: We know how competitive you are against your own personal best and everyone else's. Whether you're pumping iron in the gym or jogging around the neighborhood, you're always striving for improvement. But it's important to remember that a football game – championship or not – is just a game. Enjoy it with friends and keep your emotions in check.
