Description:

This paper is intended to draw attention to the importance of physical activity for CVD prevention. It summarises the evidence and the biological mechanisms which explain why activity decreases CVD risk and outlines a series of policy recommendations for creating an environment that fosters a more physically active life. These require support from the European Union’s action programmes in public health and EU legislation that has an impact on environment, transport, the workplace and leisure-time activities.
