Daily exercise at early old age could prevent heart diseases

Twenty minutes of moderate to vigorous daily exercise in early old age might stave off major heart disease, including heart failure, in late old age, suggests the latest research published in Heart. It revealed that analysis of data from 3,099 older Italians in the Progetto Veneto Anziani (ProVA) study found moderate physical activities including walking, bowls, fishing and vigorous activities including gardening, gym workouts, cycling, dancing and swimming significantly improve heart health later on. The health of participants were tracked through linkage to hospital discharge records and those with increased levels of physical activity and active lifestyle were associated with lower risks of cardiovascular disease and death in both men and women.
