Can I reverse my high risk for coronary artery disease?

Typically a high risk for coronary artery disease can't be reversed, but it can be stabilized. Lack of progression is the key. Diet and exercise is the best therapy to reduce heart attacks and strokes going forward. Exercise should be done three to four times a week in 30-minute intervals of cardiac-type exercise like walking or running.
