(EAST STROUDSBURG, PA) The snowfall also comes with its own list of serious heath concerns. Doctors at Pocono Medical Center say any type of vigorous exercise including shoveling can put a strain on your heart. Researchers say the three factors that put people at risk for heart problems while shoveling include being male, having a family history of artery disease, and smoking. If you notice any unusual symptoms while cleaning up outside you are urged to get to the hospital right away.
