Air Pollution & Exercise – for people with heart disease
According to a new study in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association, people with heart disease should think twice about exercising in polluted air.
Tests showed that when air pollution was high, people with heart disease who exercised were about three times more likely to have decreased oxygen supply to their heart muscle than when air pollution was negligible.
Point is, a decreased oxygen supply to heart muscles can cause heart strain.
Yet another reason to keep your diet as heart-friendly as possible by reducing your intake of saturated fat and eating plenty of fruit and vegetables.
A balanced diet coupled with regular exercise is still the best way to lose weight and reduce fat. Diet is an excellent plan with lots of practical advice about dieting, exercise, diet-motivation and long term weight control.
