Physical activity prescription for improving health in patients with cardiometabolic risk: using empirical evidence to provide clear public health messages

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Despite a reduction in cardiovascular mortality in recent decades in industrialized countries, the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is still increasing because of lack of control of cardiovascular risk factors, including physical inactivity [1]. Indeed, a large number of epidemiological and clinical studies have shown that regular physical activity (PA) reduces the main modifiable cardiometabolic risks, which leads to premature death due to cardiovascular disease [2]. The direct health benefits of regular exercise are now irrefutable, and exercise appears as efficient as pharmacologic strategies to control chronic diseases [3]. Therefore, it seems that “exercise is medicine”
