4 Your Health: Jogging may fix your heart.

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- More proof that exercise is good for the heart.

Studies using mice, show just one session of endurance exercise, like running, increased the body's ability to repair damaged heart tissue.
In fact, researchers believe exercise could be just as important for heart health as a healthy diet and maintaining normal cholesterol levels.

Researchers hope future studies will lead to drug-free cures for heart disease.

And weight may affect end of life care for terminally ill seniors.

A new study found the heavier the person was the less likely they were to get hospice care or the choice to die at home. There was also a financial cost. End of life care expenses were about $3,500 higher for obese seniors.
