Researchers may have determined amount of exercise necessary for cardiovascular health

Newsweek (5/21, Gander) reports that researchers “believe they have pinpointed the exact amount of time we need to spend working out in order to look after our” hearts.

USA Today (5/21, Molina) reports that the study “found varying amounts of exercise can affect different sized-arteries.” For instance, “the study found exercising 2-3 days a week for 30 minutes may help minimize stiffening in middle-sized arteries, while larger central arteries will stay youthful when you exercise 4-5 days a week.” The findings were published Sunday in the Journal of Physiology.
