Four in five Britons have a heart that is older than they are: Obesity and lack of exercise to blame for premature ageing 

Four in five Britons have hearts prematurely aged by poor lifestyles.
In the worst cases, men and women in their mid-40s had hearts typical of 60-year-olds.
The disparity puts them at far greater risk of cardiac arrest, stroke and diseases of old age.
Published today, the research by University College London is a stark reminder of the dangers of obesity and lack of exercise.
Two thirds of British adults are overweight or obese – one of the worst rates in Europe. 
The findings are based on the responses of 575,000 users of a heart age calculator on the NHS Choices website.
