Exercise May Protect Against Brain Hemorrhage

A recent study conducted by researchers at Gothenburg’s Sahlgrenska Academy investigated the relationship between exercise and brain hemorrhage. They found that people who participated in regular exercise, such as walking or cycling, were less likely to have a major brain hemorrhage. The study included 500,000 Swedish adults who were monitored for 17 years, and the researchers found that those who exercised at least twice a week had a 60% lower risk of suffering from a major brain hemorrhage compared to those who did not exercise regularly. The protective effect of exercise was found to be strongest for the type of brain hemorrhage caused by weakened blood vessels, known as intracerebral hemorrhage. The researchers theorize that exercise may help reduce blood pressure and strengthen blood vessels, which could explain the protective effect. However, the study does not prove that exercise directly causes a lower risk of hemorrhage and further research is needed to explore the mechanism underlying this association.
