Heart attack: Two medications which could increase risk of a heart attack in hot weather


Why?

Climate change. As the world gets hotter and the weather becomes more extreme, countries will start to have longer and warmer summers.

As a result, 40-degree days akin to that which the UK experienced in July will become more common.

This means those taking heart attack medications will be at greater risk for a longer period of time.

However, what it doesn’t mean is patients should stop taking them; beta-blockers and aspirin are essential.
