Who Gets Frostbite the Most?


After discovering who is most susceptible to frostbite, you might expect the answer to "who gets frostbite the most" to be maybe the elderly or people with diabetes. But most people who get frostbite are actually males ages 30 to 49 years, which makes at the very least theoretical sense if you factor in mountaineers and outdoor workers.
