Fitness levels in Men Correale with risk of Cardiovascular disease

Being physically fit can dramatically reduce men's deaths from heart disease - even when their cholesterol rates are high, reports a research study.//The above finding holds good regardless of the cholesterol level in men. Infact, men can cut by half their risk of dying from cardiovascular disease if they are physically fit. The study which analysed the variuos cause and effect relationship with respect to cardiovascular disease discovered that fitness is an important factor - at every level of cholesterol." Results also suggest that within a given risk category, physical fitness is associated with a greater than 50-per-cent lower risk of mortality. Physical ftnes quotient employed in the study is equivalent to walking 130 to 138 minutes per week. Researchers analyzed the cardiovascular risk factors and cardio-respiratory fitness of 19,125 men ages 20 to 79 and established that men who met the criteria for therapeutic lifestyle intervention had twice the risk of cardiovascular disease death; and men eligible for aggressive cholesterol-lowering therapy had almost seven-times the risk. Lowering the threshold for consideration of cholesterol-lowering drug therapy for those at high risk will ultimately save lives and also have important implications for the healthcare system.
