Can you get rid of plaque and build up in the arteries through exercise?

I would like to know if exercise, diet, and hard work could get rid of plaque in the heart and arteries and if not is there anything that can other than a angioplasty or surgery. thanks

    No, that plaque is there to stay. What exercise does is enlarge the artery so that more blood can pass through. What's scary about this plaque thing is that they've found it starting out in kids at the age of ten.

    Exercise can help with heart health. But diet and family genetics still play a part. Basically, a healthy lifestyle limits its progress.
