Exercise and Heart Attacks

Exercise Improves Survival After a Heart Attack-

Regular aerobic exercise reduces the risk of coronary artery disease and death from heart attack and cardiac arrest. A Copenhagen City Heart Study, found the physically active suffer 25 percent fewer heart attacks. Also more likely to survive if they had a heart attack. The study involved more than 14,000 people – 1,664 of whom had heart attacks. Staying active, however did not reduce the risk of heart failure in people who previously had a heart attack. Moderate-intensity training provided slightly more protection against heart attack. While high-intensity training is good, only moderate-intensity, needed for protection. Regular training and aerobics can save your life.
