Gardening, simple projects could fend off heart attack, stroke
The key to fending off a heart attack or stroke may be as simple as taking up gardening, especially for those over the age of 65-years-old.
Researchers found simple activities like do-it-yourself projects around the house and gardening were just as beneficial as exercise in lowering levels of harmful blood fats, glucose and insulin.
Seniors who were the most active had nearly a 30 percent lower risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
