Health alert: Not enough sex can kill you

black-couple-intimate-passionHusbands around the world can now use another excuse — a healthy one — to get their wives in bed and vice versa.

The researchers at Tufts University and the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston who conducted the study revealed, “Regular physical activity has been identified as strongly associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease and related mortality.”

“The study included 14 case crossover studies of acute cardiac events that observed and recorded the association between episodic physical and sexual activity and heart attacks and suggestive evidence of an association between episodic physical activity and SCD.”

The research concluded that the relative risk of heart attack was decreased by about 45 percent and sudden cardiac death by 30 percent for each additional time per week that the person had sex.

Besides sex being a full cardio workout, reducing the risk of heart attack makes it even more of a reason to get physically active between the sheets.

The full study can be found in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
