Study finds intense exercise may be harmful to the heart

New research suggests too much intense exercise may be harmful to the heart.

However, those who did the most strenuous daily exercise doubled their risk of dying from a cardiovascular event.

Experts say moderate physical activity is most beneficial to heart health.
