Can shoveling snow cause heart attacks?
on people aged 12-21?

it did to my next door neighbor just last year...
he was 89 years old and insisted on doing it himself ever since I moved next door...

i dont think so.
i mean of course its possible
but unless your extremely obese or have a family condition then its extremely rare.

Jesus Freak
yes if they are out of shape, their heart shouldn't be that out of shaoe by then anyhow....Life is short; pray HARD!

yes it is uncommon, but possible.

Especially if they have pre-existing heart disease or a strong family history.

Snow shovelling is a big reason for heart attacks. however any sudden exertion can cause a heart attack if the person leads a sedentary life style is consequently of poor health

Robert G.
No, shovelling snow does not usually cause heart attacks, but anything can happen. It depends on how healthy the person is.

Not usually, but it's possible.

Amy P
Anything is possible. However, it would be very unusual for someone aged 12-21 years to have a true heart attack while shoveling snow. Almost unheard of. And besides, shoveling is terriffic exercise, which everyone needs more of.
