Check out this newsflash: According to the American Stroke Assocation, an epidemiological study in Finland is"the first to find an inverse association between leisure-time physical activity and the risk of any stroke."

"Daily walking or cycling to and from work also reduces ischemic stroke risk and, therefore, should be recommended to all people," said lead investigator Dr. Gang Hu. Compared to people registering no activity while commuting to or from work, the risk of total stroke was 8 percent lower for those who were physically active for one to 29 minutes on their way to work each day. It was 11 percent lower for people who were active for more than 30 minutes on their way to work.
