New research published in the European Heart Journal suggests that even people with no signs of cardiovascular disease should exercise to prevent a heart attack.
Zhaoli Dai, Ph.D., from the Boston University School of Medicine, and colleagues used data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI) and the Framingham Offspring Osteoarthritis Study to assess how BMI and inflammation might impact the observed association between greater fiber intake and the lower risk for symptomatic knee osteoarthritis.
