(HealthDayNews) -- Snow shoveling often is a riskier activity for men than women, says the Harvard Medical School advisor. Some men see snow shoveling as a challenge and will keep at it until every last flake is out of the way. Women, on the other hand, will usually clear a narrow path that's safe enough to pass through.
As a rule, men with heart disease shouldn't shovel snow. And even healthy men over age 50 should avoid it. Some older men have heart disease without knowing it.
