JOGGING or cycling to work reduces the risk of heart attack in the over 50s, researchers say.
The benefits of exercise outweigh the damage caused by poor air quality in cities
A study of more than 50,000 50- to 65-year-olds found moderate cycling for at least four hours a week cut recurrent heart attacks by 31 percent.
And there was a 58 percent reduction when combined with other activities such as sports, hiking and gardening.
Dr. Nadine Kubesch from Copenhagen University in Denmark: "Our study shows that physical activity, even in air pollution – in cities with concentrations similar to those in Copenhagen – can reduce the risk of heart attack."
