Ocassional exercise and sexual activity can increase risk of heart attack

New research says both exercise and sex can trigger a short term increased risk of heart attack and sudden cardiac death. This risk is low to those who maintain constant physical activity. When it comes to these activities your better to do it on a regular basis, especially for seniors. Regular physical activity is strongly associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease and related mortality. Overall an event of sexual activity was associated with 2.7 times increased risk of heart attack, atleast one to two hours after exerting oneself. This study found that each additional time a person exercised in a week reduced the risk of heart attack by 45%, and 30% for suddden cardiac death. If you have not done much physical activity recently dont go running a marathon, gradually build up your stamina.
