The data was taken from 40,000 participants across 15 age groups (spanning ages 22 to 90). The results revealed that smoking is the most common risk factor for heart disease in young adult women, but those age 30 and above who are "inactive" are most at risk for heart disease.
Based on the results, the researchers advise women in this category to slot in at least 30 to 45 minutes of daily exercise as a way to reduce their risk by half.
