A recent study conducted at Shaare Zedek and recently published in the American Journal of Medicine found that weekly sex could boost the survival rate among heart attack survivors. The multi-decade study was conducted by medical researchers Shaare Zedek and at Tel Aviv University and found that patients who had suffered myocardial infarction who had sex once a week had a 37% lower mortality rate than those who abstained.
The study tracked 1,120 Israeli heart attack patients under the age of 65 since the early 1990’s and found an “inverse relationship” between sexual activity frequency and death. However, it is unclear if sexual activity only correlates with lower mortality or if there is a causal relationship.
