I just received a thank you card from the family of a patient of mine. It was a card put out by the American Heart Association. On the back was the following (I could not have said it better): "A physically inactive lifestyle is a risk factor for coronary heart disease and stroke. Regular moderate-to-vigorous physical activity done for at least 30 minutes on a most or all days of the week helps prevent heart and blood vessel disease. The more activity, the greater your benefits."
