Danish researchers analyzed data on almost 2,800 men who were followed for 16 years and found for every 10-beat-per-minute increase in resting heart rate, the mortality risk rose by 16%. The findings appear in the journal Heart. "A high heart rate does not necessarily mean disease. But we know that there is a very strong and significant association between high heart rate and life expectancy," researcher Dr. Magnus Thorsten Jensen said.
