Physical exercise reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases
There is a proven link between a lack of exercise and cardiovascular diseases. Exercise helps you maintain a better ratio between LDL cholesterol and HDL cholesterol. An LDL cholesterol level that is too high can lead to hardening of the arteries.
Intensive physical exercise also improves the condition of the heart and lungs, which helps to prevent cardiovascular diseases. Furthermore, physical exercise is a good way to achieve or maintain a healthy weight.
Make sure, therefore, that you get enough physical exercise (at least 30 minutes each day).
