Will Exercise Trigger Cardiac Risk?

PositiveTips

Have you heard a middle-age person say, "Oh, I don't exercise anymore because I am afraid it will trigger a heart attack." Researchers analyzed all sudden cardiac events (SCAs) in a group of people 35-65 years old over 10 years. They found only 5% experienced SCAs during exercise, and almost two-thirds of those had previous cardiovascular symptoms. 

PositiveTip: The small short-term increase in risk associated with exercise is outweighed by the long-term benefits of regular physical activity.
