Abstract:

Detailed information is presented here concerning a comprehensive literature survey on epidemiologic, pathologic, and animal studies evaluating the effects of chronic exercise on the heart and on coronary artery disease. No definitive conclusion could yet be reached. Alteration of the three cardinal risk factors--cholesterol, hypertension, and cigarette smoking--should be the main aim of preventive cardiology efforts.
