In a nutshell: Modest sustained lifestyle changes can reduce cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality.

This scientific statement by the American Heart Association provides evidence-based recommendations, strategies and guidelines for implementing physical activity and dietary interventions. Implications for policy and future research are also briefly outlined.
