Healio (4/6, Kalvaitis) reports, “For adults with anxiety or depression, regular exercise had nearly double the CV benefit compared with those without these diagnoses,” investigators concluded after analyzing “health records of 50,359 adults (mean age, 59 years) in the Mass General Brigham Biobank database,” then assessing “rates of major adverse CV events among participants who self-reported physical activity for at least 500 metabolic equivalent (MET) minutes per week, which is aligned with current guideline recommendations for physical activity, compared with those who exercised less than 500 MET minutes per week.” The findings were presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 71st Annual Scientific Session & Expo.  (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
