Cardiovascular disease: Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for one in four deaths. Regular physical activity can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by lowering blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. It can also help improve heart health by strengthening the heart and lungs.
