The following are some new links that have just come out re Atrial Fibrillations.
 
"Heavy drinking is associated with a significantly increased risk of a rapid, irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation that can lead to stroke, according to a report in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association."
 
"Among people with atrial fibrillation who not are taking the anticoagulant drug warfarin, women are more likely to form dangerous blood clots than men, according to a study published in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association."
