Being Active Can Prevent Heart Problems
California researchers have a simple message for men looking to prevent heart problems: be active and sit less.
In a new study, they found the risk of heart failure more than doubled for men who sat for at least five hours a day and got little exercise.
That’s compared to active men who sat less than two hours a day.
The American Heart Association recommends that men and women get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise each week.
