Methods: Thirty cases were included in the control group and seventy cases were in the winter swimming group. The control group and swimming group were 60–69 years of age in the elderly. The winter swimming group was followed for 1 year and the control group carried out an index test the same year. Four items of blood lipid, electrocardiogram, and cardiac function parameters were selected as index. Results: The high-density lipoprotein cholesterol of the winter swimming group was significantly higher than that of the control group (P < 0.05), but there was no significant difference in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, total cholesterol, and triglyceride (P > 0.05); the comparison of serum cytokines were weak but in a positive direction. Conclusions: Long-term insist to winter swimming can make the heart to adapt to the morphological changes, improve cardiac function, improve myocardial blood supply, improve blood lipid metabolism, and reduce the risk of Arsenic (AS).
