-Sex and exercise can trigger heart attacks in older people who don’t get much of either, a new analysis has found.
-The risk is low, but it’s a good reminder that slackers should change their exercise habits gradually, especially in middle age. People who exercise regularly have a much smaller risk of having a heart attack immediately after sexual or physical activity, said lead author Dr Issa Dahabreh of Tufts Medical Center in Boston. “It would be really bad if someone thought our paper means people should not exercise,” Dahabreh said. “If anything, it’s the opposite.”
