It’s not the kind of news you want hear, but a new study has found that sex can kill you!

Sudden bursts of physical activity (such as sex or jogging) can massively increase your risk of having a heart attack says the new study by Dr Issa Dahabreh of Tufts Medical Centre in Boston

Researchers in the US say the chances of cardiac arrest during or immediately after such exertions are particularly high among people who do not get regular exercise.

This is not new information but this new study helps to quantify that risk. Tufts team analysed data from 14 studies looking at the link between exercise, sex and the risk of heart attacks or sudden cardiac death.

They found people are 3.5 times more likely suffer one of the two when they are exercising compared to when they are not.

And they are 2.7 times more likely to have a heart attack either during or immediately after sex compared with when they are inactive.
