Exercise to Reduce the Risk of Falls

After analyzing the results of the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study, it was found that younger people fall as much as older folks. It was also determined that two hours a week of exercises can reduce the risk of falls. These results will appear in the July issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

However, it was also found that the relationship between physical activity and walking-related falls are stronger with men than women. Men who are more fit fall less. However, women of all fitness levels tend to fall with equal frequency, and more often than men.
