Exercise linked to reduced risk of cancer!
A recent publication by the Journal of Clinical Oncology found that there was a correlation between exercise and a decreased risk of seven cancer types. A collection of nine different studies monitoring more than 750,000 adults over a ten year span was examined to determine if physical activity can be correlated with a decreased risk of any of fifteen different types of cancer. The findings of these study showed that meeting or exceeding the expected guidelines for activity resulted in a decreased risk of seven of the fifteen studied cancer types. Moderate to vigorous exercise was shown to decrease the risk of breast, colon, endometrial, kidney, liver, myeloma, and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
