From 1965 to 1968, the Honolulu Heart Program began following 8,006 men in a prospective study of cardiovascular disease.
At the time of study enrollment, an estimate of current 24-hour habitual physical activity was collected from each subject.
On the basis of a calculated physical activity index, subjects were classified as being inactive, partially active, or active.
This report examines the relation between the levels of physical activity and stroke that occurred among 7,530 of the men over 22 years of follow-up.
Risk of stroke was examined separately in younger (45-54 years) middle-aged men and older (55-68 years) middle-aged men.
