5 weird things that can happen to your body during cold weather

Posted on

Eyeballs can freeze (WHAT!?)

Again, don’t freak out. When it’s extremely cold out and you are fighting the elements for an extended period of time, it is possible for your corneas to freeze.

Also, in places where it snows often, it is possible to go blind from the reflection of the sun bouncing off of the snow and into your eyes.

So you go ahead and wear those sunglasses at night. Protect those eyeballs.

Increase risk of heart attack

Your heart is working twice as hard to pump blood through your veins and keep your body warm, thus you see an increase in heart attacks during the winter. weird things,weird things,weird things

Red face

Ever wonder why your cheeks get red after you come inside from the cold? Well, since your body was working so hard to bring your blood to your vital organs, your face seems paler when you are outside.

The moment you come inside and this survival instinct is no longer needed, the blood rushes back to your extremities. That’s where your flushed cheeks come from. weird things,weird things,weird things

Be sure to bundle up and protect those extremities!
