Sex poses surprisingly low risk to heart patients


www.cbsnews.com

Good news: Sex is safe for most heart patients. If you're healthy enough to walk up two flights of stairs without chest pain or gasping for breath, you can have a love life.

That advice from a leading doctors' group on Thursday addresses one of the most pressing, least discussed issues facing survivors of heart attacks and other heart patients.

In its first science-based recommendations on the subject, the American Heart Association says having sex only slightly raises the chance for a heart attack. And that's true for people with and without heart disease.

Oh dear - a scientific study says sex is OK - and it's by doctors, AND it's reported in the MSM!!

Tripple whamy!

Does this mean sex is not a "natural remedy", and is actually bad for you??



For myself in my6th decade of life this is definitely good news - I hope all my critics out there will find it in their hearts (sic) to also find this good news.

Except for the puritans of course - spoilsports!

Viagra and Cialis commercials always warn you NOT to take the pill if your not healthy enough for sex... could cause heart failure

Hmmm contradiction form pharmaceutical companies...

But if your healthy enough to have sex, why do you need a pill to help get it up?

Never figured that one out

now if only we could change perspectives about sex....instead of stupid kids having more kids, people could be having educated great feeling sex, which would relieve a lot of problems and hatred.. no prostitutes and all that bs

When my grandfather had heart surgery
he asked the doctor how long before he would be able to have sex again,
and the doctor told him when he could go up and down a couple flights of stairs......

.....He walked the stairs the next morning.....

I always say, if I'm not going at it hard enough for my heart to be in risk of an attack, then I'm not doing it right
