Size Can Affect Heart

New Swedish research reveals that men who are over-sized or overweight in their 20’s run the risk of a heart ailment called Atrial fibrillation in later life.

According to the Sahlgrenska Academy at Gothenburg University, the risk also increases with size and weight.  The study, which started in 1970, covered more than 7000 men in Gothenburg aged between 45 and 55.

The results have been published in the “European Heart Journal”. (gw)
