The study was conducted by researchers at University College London who said that a moderate level of physical activity for just two-and-a-half hours a week can reduce the amount of inflammation in the body and thereby lower the risk of heart disease.

"Our study reveals for the first time the long-term effects of leading an active lifestyle on inflammation and heart disease. It's great news that people who spring into retirement and become more active are actually making a big difference in helping their hearts grow old healthily", lead researcher Dr Mark Hamer said.

The study was funded by British Heart Foundation and has been published in the journal Circulation.
