Too much exercise may be harmful to the heart

New research suggests too much intense exercise may be harmful to the heart.

Researchers studied more than 1,000 people with heart disease.

Not surprisingly, inactive patients were twice as likely to have a heart attack or stroke compared to moderately active patients. However, those who did the most strenuous daily exercise doubled their risk of dying from a cardiovascular event.

The findings show moderate physical activity is the best way to keep your heart healthy.
