Exercise can cut heart disease risk: Study
London: It's never too late for couch potatoes to start exercising and cut their risk of heart disease, according to research.
Exercising does not have to be strenuous activity even just walking can make a difference.
"You don't have to go to the gym. Just get off the couch," said Dr Dietrich Rothenbacher of the University of Heidelberg in Germany adding, "It is never too late to start exercising," he told Reuters.
The researchers studied the impact of physical activity on patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) and a group of healthy volunteers of the same age and sex.
