CHICAGO — At the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions, HHS released the second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, which provides new recommendations for children and adolescents aged 3 years through 17 years.
“This edition tells us that it’s easier to achieve the recommendations in the physical activity guidelines,” Brett P. Giroir, MD, assistant secretary for health for HHS, said during a press conference. “As opposed to everything being harder and harder, it is actually easier to achieve the recommendations in the physical activity guidelines. The new guidelines demonstrate based on the best science everyone can dramatically improve their health just by moving anytime, anywhere and by any means that gets you active.”
