When you burn calories, your heart has to beat faster, because your muscles need more oxygen and glucose, so it's basically the same.

Cardio is a good way to lose weight. On the other hand, there are other ways too (eating and of course every workout that gives you muscles).

But cardio is not only to lose weight, also to strengthen your heart, reducing pulse and blood pressure, caring for a better blood circulation in your organs, improving your guts, avoiding a lot of diseases.

Ironically athletes sometimes have problems when they are old, because their heart is too big, which causes the heart rate to be too low.

Yes. Can happen when professional athletes finish their career and don't slow down. The heart (=muscle) still is used to pump much blood. They should reduce their Training instead of stopping at once.
