How to Keep Your Heart Efficient

Swedish researchers studying 40,000 people found regular exercise can reduce your risk of heart failure by up to 46%. Heart failure refers to inefficient heart pumping not a failure to pump. Risk of death is 30-50% within 5 years of diagnosis. Researchers found that a daily dose of either 1 hour of moderate exercise (brisk walking) or 30 minutes of high intensity exercise (running/biking) had equal benefits.
