Exercise could lower your chance of getting heart disease

But a study of nearly 350,000 women has found breast cancer patients given chemotherapy and radiation treatment have no greater risk of death from heart disease than the general population.

Two new studies highlight the negative impact of depression on the health outcomes and health-related quality of life of people with cardiovascular disease.

She added: "Prior to their breast cancer diagnosis, some women may already have undiagnosed coronary heart disease, increasing their risk of a heart attack and subsequent heart failure".

The researchers looked at people who had a family or genetic history of heart disease but did not have any current heart problems, and found that overall, exercise lowered their risk of having heart problems over about six years.

Led by researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine along with Uppsala University in Sweden, the team looked at data from 482,702 participants age 40 to 69 in the United Kingdom, making it one of the largest observational studies to be carried out to date on fitness and heart disease.

The researchers examined the healthcare experiences, healthcare costs, and the use of resources in people with heart disease - all of whom had been diagnosed with depression - and compared them with those who had not received such a diagnosis. They also self-reported their exercise, wore accelerometers to subjectively measure their daily physical activity, wore hand dynamometers to measure their grip strength, and underwent a cycling test to measure their heart fitness.

The said research paper will be published online on Circulation, a scientific journal, with Ingelsson as a senior author.

The people with the weakest grips, were more at risk to these conditions.

"The main message of this study is that being physically active is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, even if you have a high genetic risk", said Erik Ingelsson, M.D., Ph.D., lead author of the study and a professor of Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine in California.

The study comes with several important caveats. Observational studies are created to establish trends. The researchers adjusted their results for a long list of confounding factors (ones known to be associated with an increased risk of heart disease), including age, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, body mass index, diabetes and smoking.

Each person in the study was categorized by their risk factors as either: high risk, moderate risk or low risk.

Among individuals deemed at high genetic risk for cardiovascular diseases, high levels of cardiorespiratory fitness were associated with a 49 percent lower risk of coronary heart disease, and a 60 percent lower risk of atrial fibrillation compared to study participants with low cardiorespiratory fitness.

"People should not just give up on exercise because they have a high genetic risk for heart disease".
