New Study Amplifies The Need To Stay Active To Prevent Heart Disease

Higher grip strength and cardiorespiratory fitness were associated with lower risk of incident coronary heart disease and atrial fibrillation in each genetic risk score group (Ptrend 0.001 in each genetic risk category).

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

For the study, the researchers looked at data from roughly a half-million people in the UK Biobank database.

Then we further examined these associations in individuals with different genetic burden by stratifying individuals based on their genetic risk scores for coronary heart disease and atrial fibrillation.

A new study now claims that children born following intensive IVF treatment may have a greater risk of developing heart disease than those conceived naturally. Genetic data from 97 percent of the participants were also used in the study.

When allowing to the participants to do self-reported exercise, they wore wrist accelerometers, hand dynamometers for grip strength and treadmills for objective measures.

Marquez felt misled during Argentina grid incident

Ingelsson explained that observational studies are created to establish trends.

However, the researchers are positive that the results are worthy for consideration in guidelines. The study found that being physically fit may protect your heart - even if you have a strong family history of the disease.

That situation changed Monday with the publication of a study in Circulation, a journal of the American Heart Association.

Daily exercise may not just rev up your fitness levels, but it may also significantly cut down risk of heart diseases that could be running in your family. Their genetic predisposition to the disease was assessed with blood tests (with the participants' consent). 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. Heart Disease has a large sub category of ailments including: Heart Attacks, Stroke, Heart Failure and Atrial Fibrillation.

Erik Ingelsson, MD, PhD, professor of cardiovascular medicine, said that people should not give up exercising as they come with a high genetic risk for heart disease and even if one does not have such high genetic risk, nevertheless, one should not stop exercising.
