Yes, sex can kill you, U.S. study shows

23 Mar

Yep, that’s right. A recent study done by a team of U.S. doctors shows that having sex can kill you. Doctors say that you are only at risk if you don’t exercise on a regular basis, or if you have an existing heart problem.

People who don’t exercise regularly are 3.5 times more likely to get a heart attack or have sudden cardiac death when they are exercising compared to when they are not.

“These elevated risks are only for a short period of time (1 to 2 hours) during and after the physical or sexual activity,”Jessica Paulus, a researcher for the study, said in a telephone interview.

If you aren’t exercising on a regular basis, the doctors said it is best to start slow and work your way up.
