Snow Shoveling has Health Risks

Snow shoveling is associated with health risks.

The combination of low temperatures and increased workload for the heart can be dangerous for individuals who are at risk of a heart attack.

If you feel symptoms such as chest pain or shortness of breath, stop shoveling and rest.
If the symptoms persist after you have stopped shoveling and had a chance to rest, call 911.

It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to cardiac issues.
