Newly reported from the USA: Physical Activity May Cut Heart Failure Risk in Women

Higher levels of physical activity (PA) are associated with a lower risk for heart failure in older women, according to a study published online Feb. 21 in JAMA Cardiology.

Michael J. LaMonte, Ph.D., M.P.H., from University at Buffalo–SUNY in New York, and colleagues examined whether accelerometer-measured PA and sedentary behavior are associated with incident heart failure in older women. The analysis included data from 5,951 women aged 63 to 99 years followed for a mean 7.5 years.
