How Cardiovascular Mortality Goes Down with Exercise

It wouldn’t surprise me to find that people who exercise a fair amount are more cheerful/less depressed. If so, the causality may point both ways – getting exercise reduces depression, but also happier people move more.

it is also clear from the data that simply getting a sufficient amount of exercise on a regular basis is very strongly correlated with reduced mortality, from all causes and from cardiovascular disease.
