Intensive exercise may run the risk of AF
In an article for The Daily Mail, Roz Lewis reviews the link between intensive exercise and atrial fibrillation (the most common type of heart rhyhm disorder). She writes that "Mild to moderate exercise will help prevent AF by reducing obesity and blood pressure.
