Risk of irregular heart rate in tall people
The risk of irregular heart rate in tall people is higher than in others. This has been claimed in a recent research. Scientists looked at the DNA of 1.2 million people and analyzed, and found that the problem of articular fibrillation (a disease associated with the arteries of the heart) is higher in tall people than in others.
According to the researchers, the danger increases by three per cent with every additional inch compared to the average length of 5.7 feet.
Gene is responsible:
Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania believe that genes are responsible for this. He says that the problem of articular fibrillation in tall people should be investigated. Other researches, however, state that the risk is greater in tall people because the surface area of their heart is “larger and more likely to have flaws.”
Increases risk of heart attack:
Artificial fibrillation is a drawback of high heart rate. This can also increase the risk of heart attack by up to five times. Around 3.3 crore people worldwide are suffering from the problem of articular fibrillation.
Why is Artificial Fibrillation Normally the heart rate is controlled by electrical signals in the heart and the sinus node sends an electrical signal to the rest of the heart. These signals make the heart shrink and also pump blood. In general, the heart shrinks and expands at a regular rate.
