Study: Heart patients don't exercise enough - Monica Malpass reports during Action News at 5pm on June 18, 2018. (WPVI)

Most heart disease sufferers - or those at high risk for it - aren't exercising enough to prevent more problems.

Doctors looked at people in both Australia and Brazil and found just 30% get 150 minutes of moderate or vigorous exercise.

They say light exercise like walking improves quality of life, but doesn't stave off heart trouble.
