Good news for those who enjoy the use of saunas. As reported in a recent Journal of the American Medical Association, Internal Medicine, men who frequently used saunas had a reduced risk of sudden cardiac death, fatal coronary heart disease, fatal cardiovascular disease (CVD), and all-cause mortality.

Additional investigations are needed to establish the possible mechanism that links sauna bathing and cardiovascular health. It is not known why the sauna effect is so positive. Possible hypotheses include time spent in the hot room, relaxation time or possibly the camaraderie enjoyed in the sauna.
