Healthy lifestyle reduces risk of genetic heart issues by 50%; study shows


Since everything is genetic, it’s important to be aware of any ailments our parents have or have had.  Sometimes we luck out and don’t inherit the gene that may cause the ailment, but awareness is key especially as we grow older.

I actually just read a recent released by Massachusetts General Hospital and it said a healthy lifestyle can reduce the risk of genetic heart issues by nearly 50 percent.  It reiterated what we already know which is a proper diet and exercise reduces the possibility of a heart attack, but the study took it a step further with findings that this also has a direct affect on the genetic variants also.

We all have good intentions when it comes to eating well and working out, but most of the time we fall short because life can get in the way.  But any progress is movement in the right direction because we are nothing without our health.

Finding the time for exercise is the #1 reason why most people don’t workout.  But thankfully that issue is also no longer as we’ve learner that something is always better than nothing when it comes to exercise.  In addition, short bursts of exercise versus longer workouts are more beneficial.  Check out my favorite workout DVDS that anyone can fit into their life here.
