“Thank you a hundred, maybe a thousand times more for the Anticancer Lifestyle Program. It has made a huge difference for me and my family.

“I feel healthier today then I felt before I was diagnosed. I no longer have that false feeling of helplessness.

“Just completed the Anticancer Lifestyle program. Strongly encourage survivors, those looking to prevent cancer, those with risk factors, and really all of us to take this course. Most of us are unaware of how many risks exist, particularly from environmental factors. My favorite was the environment section. People get some nutrition, stress management, and exercise guidance but virtually no information about toxins and their impact.”

Leisure-time physical activity significantly reduces cancer risk

A study by Matthews et al, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, found that leisure-time physical activity significantly reduced risk of many cancers.

In this pooled study of 750,000 adults, engagement in recommended amounts of leisure-time physical activity (7.5-15 MET hours/week), an equivalent of 2.5 to 5.0 hours/week of moderate-intensity activity (eg, brisk walking), was associated with significantly lower risk for breast, colon (men only), endometrial, kidney, myeloma, and liver cancer and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (women only). The strength of associations for recommended amounts of physical activity versus none ranged from a 6% to 10% lower risk for breast cancer to an 18% to 27% lower risk for liver cancer. The shape of the dose-response curves varied by cancer type. Both moderate- and vigorous-intensity activity seemed to be associated with lower risk for colon, breast, and kidney cancer.
