Serious Exercise May Benefit Middle-Aged Arteries

by drsjbecker on June 28, 2012

High levels of exercise help prevent stiffening of the arteries in middle-aged people, a small new study says.

The highly active people had far less arterial stiffness than the others. The researchers also found little difference between men and women in the highly active group, but considerable difference between men and women in the inactive and moderately active group. In that group, men had less arterial stiffness than women, according to a university news release.  http://consumer.healthday.com/Article.asp?AID=665207
