“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.”

I really loved this course…it has changed my life and makes me feel like I have some control over a non-controllable situation! THANKS SO MUCH!!”

Physical activity lowers the risk of many cancers

A review by Ruiz-Casado et al, published in the journal Trends in Cancer found that regular, moderate-intensity physical activity (PA) (e.g., brisk walking) decreases the risk of many cancers as well as of cancer mortality.  In animal studies regular exercise inhibits tumor onset and progression across a wide range of tumor models.

PA has been shown to lower cancer risk in breast, prostate, endometrial, ovarian, renal, pancreatic, colon, lung, and gastroesophageal cancers.

To a certain extent, PA’s benefits on cancer risk/mortality are dose dependent (e.g., even more evident in elite athletes), and no detrimental effect has been found.
