More exercise after heart attack linked to lower mortality rates, study suggests

Reuters (1/7, Rapaport) reports that research suggests “heart attack survivors who step up their exercise efforts may live longer than those who remain inactive.” Investigators found that “compared to patients who were inactive for the first 10 to 12 months after their heart attack, patients who were active during that whole time were 71 percent less likely to die during the four-year study.” The findings were published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
