Abstract

A recent study in Moscow reported higher cardiovascular mortality on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays and linked this to the Russian pattern of binge drinking. Other studies have reported an increased risk of cardiac events on Mondays, a peak on other days, or no significant weekly variation. We investigated the patterns of death from coronary heart disease by day of the week in the Scottish population and explored possible links with patterns of alcohol consumption.
