Exercise may help prevent cardiovascular disease in smokers

April 20, 2015

Smokers who partake in moderate to high cardiorespiratory fitness have a reduced chance of developing metabolic syndrome and other cardiorespiratory disease risk factors, according to a recently published study.

“Greater [cardiorespiratory fitness] may attenuate some of the negative health effects when cessation is unlikely…Those who smoke and are not ready or able to quit may benefit from engaging in physical activity in an effort to increase [cardiorespiratory fitness]” Darla Kendzor, PhD, of the Department of Health Promotion and Behavioral Science, UTHealth School of Public Health Dallas Regional Campus, and colleagues, wrote.
