Least Heart Failure Risk for the Lean and Active

According to research conducted by doctors of the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and their colleagues assessing heart failure risk, found that the lean and active groups had the least risk, while the inactive group had the highest risk.

Also, even engaging in vigorous physical activity just about 1 to 3 times a month can make a difference by reducing risk of heart failure by a good 18 percent.

The results will be published in the Jan. 6 issue of the medical publication - Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.
