Grief over losing loved one linked to higher heart attack risks


Your risk of heart attack may increase during the days and weeks after the death of a close loved one, according to research reported in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.   

A study of 1,985 adult heart attack survivors showed that after a significant person's death, heart attack risks increased to 21 times higher than normal within the first day and were almost six times higher than normal within the first week.
