Reduce Risk of Stroke with Exercise
The University of Alabama at Birmingham’s researchers conducted a new study in which they examined the relationship between stroke and exercise in a large biracial sample of American men and women. Participants were asked to self-report on their daily physical activity while the researchers compared that information to incident of stroke, if any. After five years, the results demonstrated that the physical inactivity was associated with a 20 percent increased risk of stroke.
