"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.
