ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a clinical study according to which increased physical activity and combined dietary changes reduce mortality in coronary artery disease. Randomized controlled trials (RCT) were conducted in patients 50% of whom had the history of myocardial infarction or angina pectoris or previous coronary artery bypass. 3 meta-analyses, 10 RCTs, and 9 cohort studies met the selection criteria. In patients with coronary artery disease, evidence from randomized controlled trials supports increased physical activity and combined dietary changes for reducing mortality.
