Super Bowl Loss Really a Heart Stopper for Some Fans
Date:1/31/2011

MONDAY, Jan. 31 (HealthDay News) -- Super Bowl fans, beware: Research warns that Sunday's match-up between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers could be a killer, literally.

The victims: diehard fans whose hearts can't withstand the emotional stress that comes with watching the defeat of their much loved team.

"Stress reduction programs or certain medications might be appropriate in individual cases."

Kloner has previously reported similar links between Super Bowl outcomes and cardiac death risk, and last year a German study that focused on fans of World Cup soccer found that watching one's team play a big match can more than double the risk for having a heart attack among male fans, particularly for those already sporting risk factors for heart disease.

In their current effort, Kloner and colleagues analyzed cardiac-related mortality data surrounding two previous Super Bowl games: the first in 1980, when the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Los Angeles Rams; and the second in 1984, when the Los Angeles Raiders beat the Washington Redskins.

The results: the 1980 loss by the Rams was linked to a 15 percent rise in all circulatory deaths among men living in the Lo
