Achy, quaky hearts

If you survive a major earthquake your heart might still be in danger years afterwards. For example, the death toll from 2004 Niigata-Chuetsu earthquake in Japan was relatively low (39 fatalities) but there was also a lot of disruption to life with 9000 people living in temporary housing for a year and 5000 living there for another year again. Comparing people who lived in the quake zone to a group of people outside the zone, researchers compared heart attack death rates for five years before and three years after the quake. There was no change in rates in the non-quake area but in the quake zone heart attack deaths increased from 47.3 per 100 000 people before the quake to 53.9 per 100 000 in the years following. It is probably due to persistent stress and gives a new dimension to the term “aftershock”.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
