Risks Ahead. Have you checked your Thanksgiving risk profile lately?

  1. The traditional American Thanksgiving dinner includes 3,000 – 4,500 calories. This can lead to “holiday heart syndrome,” which is caused by the combination of alcohol and overeating – often, binge drinking and binge eating – in people with otherwise normal hearts. This leads to supraventricular arrhythmias, typically atrial fibrillation.
  2. One glass of red wine amounts to approximately 95 calories.
  3. The Thanksgiving holiday is the most deadly four-day holiday period on American roads, according to the Insurance Institute For Highway safety. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is traditionally the busiest travel day of the year for Americans. AAA projects 43.4 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home during the holiday weekend.
  4. Stimulant drinks, often in combination with alcoholic beverages, can be a dangerous combination. While they help those who consume large amounts of caffeine stay awake and combat the sedative effects of the alcohol; it also places them at high risk for arrhythmias, elevated blood pressure, anxiety and agitation.
  5. As deep-frying a turkey has spread in popularity from the Southern United States to other regions, the number of calls the fire department responds to and the number of trips to the emergency room has increased exponentially.
