Physical Activity Linked to Reduced Risk of 7 Cancers

The seven cancers are breast, colon, endometrial, kidney, liver, multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Based on data from 755,450 adults who were tracked for 10 years, the researchers concluded that the odds of developing these cancers decline as physical activity increases.

A recent Washington Post article reads…

Moderate-intensity activity involves moving fast enough or strenuously enough to burn three to six times more energy than if you were sitting still, while vigorous intensity activity burns more than six times as much energy. Examples of moderate-intensity activity include brisk walking, water aerobics, ballroom dancing and general gardening. Activities that qualify as vigorous intensity include running, swimming laps, aerobic dancing and bicycling at 10 mph or faster. The potential reduction in cancer risk found by the new research adds to other health benefits already linked to being physically active: a healthier heart, blood pressure improvements, better sleep, more energy, weight loss and an improved mood.
