Researchers have found that moderate exercise could halve the risk of dying from a heart attack for someone in their fifties or sixties, reported Independent.

A new study presented at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress suggested that regular exercise can increase life span.

A group of 69 healthy non-smokers, aged between  30 and 60, who did not take regular exercise were tested as part of the study at Saarland University, Germany.
