MooPig Brain Industries :: "Stroke and Heart Attacks"

Death Rates Correlate to Football Games
Retrieved by Pat Darnell  |  Feb 10, 2014  |  Bryan TX

In previous posts in MooPig Wisdom, we have come to find that playing contact sports like American Football, World Soccer, and World Rugby can cause long term brain disease. " ... Head injury study of 35 former NFL and CFL players finds that 34 of them showed signs of brain disease before their deaths:
  • Dozens of athletes had donated their brains to be studied by Boston University School of Medicine
  • Thirty-three of 50 subjects showing signs of CTE had played in the NFL
  • New interest in brain injury effects after murder suicide involving Kansas City Chiefs player Javon Belcher (4 December 2012. HERE) ..."
What about us fans?
Don't we get overly excited, or overly morose when our teams win and lose? I found some studies of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular activity measured during football seasons. Surprisingly, heart attack and stroke numbers went up nearly 25% in cities where teams lost major games. But the researchers warn that "these results show an association but do not prove causality."

How The Super Bowl Can Kill You: "Heart Attacks And The Super Bowl In the eight-day period after the Patriots unexpectedly lost the 2008 Super Bowl to the New York Giants, deaths attributed to heart attacks went up 24% in Massachusetts. Conversely, when the Steelers beat the Arizona Cardinals the following year, deaths from heart attacks decreased by 46% in Pittsburgh.
1) Is this coincidence? Maybe.
2) But the researchers only did these studies because death rates in LA famously went up in the two weeks after the Los Angeles Rams lost Super Bowl XIV to the Steelers. And you thought the players were the only ones who might get hurt. (MATT MCCARTHY on REGRESSINGMEDSPIN. 1/31/14. HERE) ..."

" ... Not surprisingly, Super Bowl Sunday tends to be the slowest day of the month in the Emergency Room. In fact, this has also been demonstrated across the globe. Decreased visits to the ER have been observed during UEFA Champions League games and during the Rugby World Cup (ibid. MCCARTHY) ..."

" ... We can expect roughly eight percent of fans leaving the Super Bowl to be legally intoxicated. (It might be even higher for people watching at a Super Bowl party.) An interesting proposal that hasn't gained any traction: Experts have suggested that beer sponsors should subsidize public transportation after the Super Bowl. (ibid. MCCARTHY) ..."

" ... Viewing a stressful soccer match more than doubles the risk of an acute cardiovascular event. In view of this excess risk, particularly in men with known coronary heart disease, preventive measures are urgently needed. -- Copyright 2008 Massachusetts Medical Society (Wilbert-Lampen U, Leistner D, Greven S, Pohl T, Sper S, Völker C, Güthlin D, Plasse A, Knez A, Küchenhoff H, Steinbeck G. 2008 Jan 31. HERE)..."

" ... World Cup soccer games and, specially, Brazil's matches have an impact on the incidence of myocardial infarction, but not on in-hospital mortality. (Borges DG, Monteiro RA, Schmidt A, Pazin-Filho A. 2013 Jun. HERE). .."

"...Therapies targeting this pathway can potentially prevent acute mental stressors from initiating plaque rupture. Limited evidence suggests that appropriately timed administration of beta-blockers, statins and aspirin might reduce the incidence of triggered myocardial infarctions. Stress management and transcendental meditation warrant further study.(Schwartz BG, French WJ, Mayeda GS, Burstein S, Economides C, Bhandari AK, Cannom DS, Kloner RA. 2012 Jul. HERE ) ..."
