Researchers at the University of Toronto have published a New England Journal of Medicine study that associates flu-like symptoms, suggesting that flu injection can bring many benefits that could be used to avoid lethal heart attacks.
A study carried out by Jeffrey Kwong and his colleagues examined about 20,000 people with flu.
They discovered that within a week the risk of an influenza heart attack increased by 600 percent, while the risk increases with other respiratory infections that increase when they get the flu.
Scientists have found that flu causes a heart attack risk.
What can you do to protect your heart? It turned out that something as simple as a flu vaccine can act as an integrated "heart".
In another study, researchers from the National Institute for Infectious Diseases and Disease Control in Taiwan tested medical records in 80,000 older patients over the age of 13 years.
The study found that annual influenza vaccination reduced the risk of heart attack by 20 percent and provided similar protection against stroke.
The injection not only reduces the risk of a heart attack, but also protects patients who already have a heart condition before the flu.
