Another medical finding

I couldn’t resist this one, spotted upon the website of The Independent overnight.

Apparently, researchers at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre Institute have discovered, men are ten times more likely to die of a heart attack whilst having sex than women – the scores are that in men 1% of all sudden deaths from heart attacks occur during sex whilst the instances of similar deaths in women is only 0.1%.


On the Rust we delight in highlighting media reports of whacky or apparently absurd academic/medical research.

In providing this public service today I can only reflect that I suppose personally – whatever I eventually suffer that causes me to shuffle off this mortal coil – at least I can be thankful it isn’t going to be a cardiac arrest that overtakes me whilst ‘in the act’.
