The number of fatal heart attacks and strokes was significantly higher in winter than in summer, regardless of climate, according to a study published in the journal Circulation. The study assessed mortality in seven different climate regions across the U.S. including Southern California and Massachusetts, finding no statistical difference between any of the sites. Experts speculated that a number of factors could play a role including weather, seasonal infections and holidays.
