Exercise Can Prevent Cancer
Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. (Lung cancer is the leading cause.)
In recent years, major studies have shown a direct correlation between physical activity and cancer risk. Adding 30 minutes of exercise to one's daily schedule can decrease the risk of colon cancer by 15 percent. And more exercise can reduce the risk even further.
Moderate exercise has also been shown to reduce the risk of prostate cancer and breast cancer.
