6 foods to help protect your heart during the cold winter months

There are diseases that are easy to catch due to the cold in winter. If you stay in a cold place for a long time, the blood flow gradually slows down as the chill turns. When the body temperature drops, hypothermia or frostbite may occur.

Heart disease is also a disease that tends to occur in winter. There are reports that cold weather increases the risk of heart-related diseases, such as heart attack, heart failure, and stroke.
