Alberta Health Services would like to warn people about the health hazards of shoveling snow. They warn that snow shoveling can increase the risk of heart attack in people who suffer from heart conditions, and people with such conditions are encouraged to get someone else to shovel snow for them. Citizens are also urged to make sure they are doing it correctly, in order to avoid back problems.
