Snow shovelinb bent or straight handle?

I have been reading an article on snow shovel handles in our national media. The question is: Is a straight or bent handle better ?

It even has comments from several people debating the relative merits of each.

My partner (a VERY interesting woman) suggested that I share this article with my dull men’s club. It’s here:
