Also, to add to the list of things that make heart attacks (and lots of other things) less likely:


I would also add at least 150 minutes of cardio a week. (If Yoga counts as 'strength training', then a 'good' walk - not stroll - counts as cardio. Walk up and down hills best.)

Cycling is a good cardio workout and it’s also good for strengthening the lower muscles.

And having just re-read the article, no they did say it was the cold - though also lots of other things. But the cold can raise your blood pressure and your blood viscosity so increasing heart attack and stroke risk. I was just remembering the opening of the article about winter in LA being warmer, but they move on from that.
