Moderate exercise significantly reduced the risk of stroke in women and seemed to offset much but not all of the increased stroke risk in postmenopausal women on hormone therapy. In a large retrospective study, a self–reported history of moderate–to–strenuous physical activity in the prior 3 years was associated with a roughly 20%-30% lower risk for stroke in an analysis of data on 133,479 women in the California Teachers Study who had been followed every 4–5 years since 1995 by questionnaire.
