Risk of heart diseases in adulthood is likely to be higher in teenagers who suffer with stress, revealed a study. Tackling stress and promoting physical fitness in teenage can be a good option as being fit when young leads to a reduced risk of heart disease later in life.

The researcher led by the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Sweden's Orebro University explained that sometimes even good physical fitness does not seem to provide protection from heart disease among those who did not cope with stress well or were inflexible with it.

The research suggested that physical fitness varies by stress resilience level and that the protective effect of fitness in adolescence was reduced or eliminated in those with low-stress resilience, and prevention of this includes promoting both physical fitness and tackling stress.

The research is published online in the journal Heart.
