Study: Exercise Can Decrease The Risk Of Genetic Cardiovascular Disease
The Genetic Risk Canny Be Eliminated, But It Can Be Attenuated
One of the causes of heart disease and hypertension is genetics. This means that, if high blood pressure or heart attacks have been common in the patient’s family, then it is very probable that it will also happen to the patient. Fortunately, a recent study states that exercise can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, even in those that have a high genetic risk. Researchers reviewed the genetic profiles of those with a high risk of coronary heart disease, and atrial fibrillation, with also a high level of cardiorespiratory fitness, and concluded that their fitness level reduced their risk of coronary heart disease and atrial fibrillation on 49% and 60%. This means that genetic risk cannot be eliminated, but can be attenuated. More Information click here.
