Vacation to reduce cardiovascular diseases

Teacher Insights

Research conducted at Syracuse University provides medical evidence that a person can reduce metabolic symptoms - and therefore the risk of cardiovascular disease - simply by going on vacation.

There is one more reason to appreciate our vacation time: the value to our heart health. A new study by Syracuse University professors has found that people who vacation more frequently have a lowered risk for metabolic syndrome and metabolic symptoms. Metabolic syndrome is a collection of risk factors for cardiovascular disease. If you have more of them you are at higher risk of cardiovascular disease. There has been a reduction in the risk for cardiovascular disease the more vacationing a person does. Because metabolic symptoms are modifiable, it means they can change or be eliminated.A person can reduce their metabolic symptoms - and therefore their risk of cardiovascular disease - simply by going on vacation.
