More Frequent Exercise Associated With Lower Risk Of Stroke Among Men

July 18, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A U.S. study involving 27,000 stroke-free blacks and white older than 45  found that physical inactivity, which was reported a 33 percent of participants, was associated with a 20 percent greater risk of stroke. Men who exercised four or more times a week had a lower stroke risk, but the link between exercise frequency  and stroke among women was less clear. The researchers acknowledged that a limitation of the study was the self-reporting aspect. Results based on self-reported levels of physical activity may not reflect the truth.
