At least 40 minutes of brisk walking daily every week may significantly reduce the risk of heart failure among older women, a recent study has found. The benefit appears to be consistent regardless of a woman's body weight or whether she engages in other forms of exercises besides walking, the researchers said.
Brisk walking reduces cardiac disease in women
About 6.5 million adults have heart failure, a condition in which the heart becomes too weak to pump enough blood to meet the body's needs.
Walking is not only an accessible form of exercise but almost equal to all other types of exercise that have been studied before in terms of lowering Heart failure risk.
