Health Info  Health Stories  Physical Activity

Physical inactivity is a major modifiable risk factor for heart attack, just like cigarette smoking, obesity, high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol. There’s no guarantee that you won’t get heart disease even if you’re physically active. However, being active is still smart, because you can reduce your risk of heart disease by exercising regularly and avoiding the other risk factors.

 

Studies show that being physically fit lowers heart disease risk even in people who have other health problems such as high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol. However, you can’t just exercise a lot and ignore other risk factors. To minimize risk, you should be physically active and avoid the other major risk factors you can do something about: cigarette smoke, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and overweight.
