    Exercise after the age of 60 may prevent heart disease, stroke

    A new study from South Korea finds that increased activity can reduce the risks of heart attack and stroke among people over the age of 60.

    In 2015, 900 million people, globally, were over the age of 60. By 2050, the World Health Organization (WHO) expect that number to reach 2 billion.

    While it is common for people to become less active as age takes a toll on one's physical capabilities, a study just published in the European Heart Journal finds that either maintaining levels of activity or becoming more active at this stage of life is important for reducing the risks of heart attack and stroke.

    The researchers found that study participants who reduced their levels of exercise over time had a 27% greater likelihood of developing heart and blood vessel issues. Those who became more active reduced their risk by as much as 11%.

    Studying physical activity in older age
    The authors of the study led by Kyuwoong Kim, of the Department of Biomedical Sciences, at Seoul National University, in South Korea analyzed data from 1,119,925 men and women 60 years or older.

    The data had been collected by the National Health Insurance Service (NIHS), which provides healthcare to about 97% of South Korea's population. The average age of participants was 67, and 47% were men.

    The NIHS conducted two health checks of the individuals, one in 20092010 and one in 20112012. The researchers collected data about these participants until 2016.

    During each check, the healthcare providers asked the participants about their levels of physical activity and their lifestyles.

    The researchers defined moderate physical activity as 30 minutes or more per day of dancing, gardening, or brisk walking. Twenty minutes or more of running, fast cycling, or aerobic exercise daily counted as vigorous exercise.
