Jogging or biking to work lowers the risk of one Heart attack in the over 50's,

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."
