Abstract

In this investigation, we compared lipid and inflammatory parameters in regular long distance runners with matched sedentary controls. Long distance runners had significantly lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and C-reactive protein levels than the control group. This exercise-induced reduction in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol was independent of the decrease in C-reactive protein levels.
