This is a question that concerns many people with heart disease. On the one hand, exercise strengthens the body. But on the other hand, can the heart handle the additional stress? This is a very important issue which will be addressed in this article.
Sedentary Lifestyle – the main cause of heart disease
People that are inactive, do not participate in any active sports, do not go to the gym, and barely move at all, are at a very large risk of becoming fat. Unless you have a very fast metabolism, which can slow down as you age, you will eventually grow fat, unless you burn off those extra calories. And, as you might know, this is the main risk factor for heart disease, including hypertension, angina pectoris, and heart attack.
