Want to avoid heart problems?

Want to avoid heart problems? Then get on your bike! A recent study involving some 45,000 Danish adults who were monitored over a 20-year period shows that those who regularly rode a bicycle – to get to work or just for fun – suffered from 11 to 18% fewer heart attacks than their non-cycling peers. And you don’t have to be a Tour de France level enthusiast to reap the benefits. The results suggest that just half an hour of peddling a week offers increased protection against coronary artery disease.
