Active helps heart.

Nearly 60,000 Finnish men and women followed for over 18 years showed that physical activity levels at the start predicted heart failure risk.

Dr Gang Hu analysed activity levels in 3 key areas – at work, commuting, and leisure – to find out what impact being physically active had.

Being highly active at work for men, moderately active at work for women, or moderate plus in leisure time for both sexes led to a significant cut in heart risk.

For women only, active commuting also cut the risk.

For those active in all 3, the risk was cut by about one third in total, with workplace activity contributing just over half of this.
