About The Study: In this study of 7,600 adults with accelerometer measurements of sedentary time and physical activity, greater accumulation of light-intensity and moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity were both associated with a reduced risk of stroke while greater time spent being sedentary and longer bouts of sedentary time were associated with an increased risk of stroke.

Authors: Steven P. Hooker, Ph.D., of San Diego State University in San Diego, is the corresponding author.
