Exercise May Not Be Sufficient In Combating Heart Stress

According to CBS News, a study published in the journal Heart has found that teens who find it difficult to cope with stress may face increased risk for future heart troubles despite any exercise they might be doing. The authors suggest that for such people, a strategy of exercise and stress reduction activities may be the key to preventing future heart issues. Study participants who struggled with stress had a 54 percent increased risk for developing heart disease, and a 110 percent increased risk of dying from heart disease. There were some limitations in this study, but experts still say physical activity is the key to preventing physical and mental ailments, and that stress management skills may have benefits as well.
