Prevent cardiovascular disease

Eating a healthy diet, not smoking, maintaining a healthy body weight, limiting alcohol consumption and practising effective stress reduction techniques are very important in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Exercise is also a vital part of any prevention program and many studies have shown reduced risk in men and women who exercise regularly.

Prevent cardiovascular diseaseExercise can reduce blood cholesterol, blood pressure and lead to a reduced risk of obesity and diabetes. Vigorous exercise is good for the heart, lungs and circulation. Activities such as brisk walking, jogging, cycling and swimming for at least 30 minutes three to four days per week at 50 to 75 per cent of maximum heart rate bring the most beneficial effects. For elderly people, moderate or low intensity exercise may be more suitable.
