Physical activity and cardiovascular risk factors in rural Shanghai, China.
Data on the association between physical activity and cardiovascular risk factors among populations with a relatively high level of physical activity such as the Chinese, are sparse.
In 1991, as part of the Sino-Shanghai Cardiovascular Disease Registry Project, a cross-sectional survey was performed in a random sample of 1206 residents, aged 35-64 years, living in rural Shanghai, China.
Information on physical activity was obtained by questionnaire.
The level of physical activity was categorized into low, moderate and high, based on the presence of a weekly frequency (<1,1 - 2, =3) of periods of 20 minutes that cause shortness of breath, increase in pulse rate and perspiration.
