Reporting from Sweden: Change in Cardiorespiratory Fitness Linked to Prostate Cancer Incidence

Change in cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) is inversely associated with the risk for prostate cancer incidence, but not mortality, according to a study published online Jan. 30 in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

Kate A. Bolam, Ph.D., from the Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences GIH in Stockholm, and colleagues conducted a prospective study to examine the associations between changes in CRF in adulthood and prostate cancer incidence and mortality. The study included men who completed an occupational health profile assessment, including at least two valid submaximal CRF tests.
