Low cardiorespiratory fitness in men tied to higher risk of stroke, study indicates

Reuters (12/31, Crist) reported researchers found that men with low cardiorespiratory fitness are more likely to have a stroke than those with higher fitness. Investigators “in Norway followed 2,014 middle-aged men for more than 20 years.” The researchers found that “those who were unfit for the whole study period, or who started out fit but became less so, were twice as likely to have a stroke as those who stayed fit or became fit.” The findings were published in Stroke.
