A new study suggests. Younger women who are exercising just 2.5 hours a week may cut their risk for heart disease up to 25 percent." The routine and the decisions we make in the first half of our life decide our well-being and relief from a severe disease in the second half of our life," said by Dr. Erin Michos, an Asst. Professor of medicine and epidemiology at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine situated in Baltimore.
Michos said."Importantly, Excessive levels of physical action have been shown to be related to a reduction in the momentum of diabetes, cancers, heart disease and many other serious health issues."


On July 25, she produced an editorial accompanying the study, which was publicized in the journal circulation online.

Lead researcher Andrea Chomistek said women can attain the commented 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical action per week in as many sessions as they desire.

She said, walking or bicycling or joining a gym, or any other common activity that one enjoys can be enough to decrease your chance of heart disease.

Chomistek, an Asst. Professor, Indiana University's School of Public Health believes that men, too, can attain a similar advantage with a few hours a week of common exercise. But, further study would be needed."It is crucial for normal-weight, heavy and obese women to be physically active," she said. "For people who are right away inactive and find joining a gym intimidating, underline the advantages of walking helps them get energetic."

For the research, Chomistek and her colleagues collected information on more than 97,000 women aged between 27 to 44, who participated in the Nurses' Health Study 2.


Especially, the researchers researched at the frequency , intensity, amount of time and type of preferred physical action in which the women participated. During 20 years of follow-up, 544 women catch heart disease.

The researchers developed that women who were the most physically involved during their relief time had the lowest chance for heart disease -- 25 percent lesser than women who exercised the least.

The researchers found, exercise didn't have to be tough, In fact, average exercise, such as taking a quick walk, was associated with a low risk of heart disease,.

But the research did not prove a reason-and-effect connection between the two.

The women who seemed to merit the exercised most, at least 150 minutes a week.

And, Chomistek also said that, it didn't matter what weight a woman was when she started exercising to lessen her chance for heart disease,.

However, Chomistek approved that the study has two flaws. First, the women in the research were mostly white, so it can't be pretended that these results c to concern the race or tribal groups. Secondly, the information from the participants was self-reported, so it's feasible that the figures were less than correct figure.


Young women are so busy being janitor of others -- their young children, their spouses, their aging parents -- that they can abandon their own health, Michos said.

"They often acts like the gateway of health for their families. If we can inspire young women to make good food choices and be more active, often their children and other members of their social network will helpful, too," Michos said.
