THE NHS has admitted some forms of heart disease are caused by the alignment of planets in the outer solar system.
Experts said the movement of Saturn through Aquarius causes dilation of the aorta just below the left ventricle and if left untreated can cause sudden death or exciting new career opportunities.
A NHS spokesman said: “Initially we dismissed the research, but the results were conclusive. We don’t yet know how it affects the other major organs, but there’s no question that endocarditis, aortic aneurysms and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy are all caused by Saturn.”
Martin Bishop, a consultant cardiologist, added: “If you’re a Scorpio or a Gemini you should probably get a scan. But wait until after the 15th because of Leo, obviously.
“On the upside, if you’re a Sagittarius you can eat whatever you want.
“You’re heart may still be broken towards the end of the month, but by unrequited love rather than a myocardial infarction.”
