Physical activity for cancer risk reduction

A review of the medical literature shows regular physical activity, such as walking, may help decrease the risk of breast, colon, lung, endometrial, kidney and prostate cancer. Moreover, some research shows women who are physically active may lower their breast cancer risk by 25%. Walking has also been shown to be beneficial for those who currently have cancer as well as those in. Walking, after all, can be a great way to get the daily activity your body needs to fight off cancer.

Walking also can help you maintain a healthy body weight. For women, walking lowers hormone levels that increase the risk for breast and endometrial cancers. But before you head outside, take note: a casual stroll won’t do the trick.

The American Cancer Society recommends that adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity each week (or a combination of these). You can get in the recommended activity levels by just walking on your lunch break for 30 minutes, 5 days a week. Among women whose only physical activity was walking, those who walked seven hours a week had a 14% lower risk for breast cancer compared with those who walked three or fewer hours a week. The longer women walked, and the more strenuously, the lower their risk dropped. Walking a mile a day can reduce the risk of dying from breast or prostate cancer by up to 40%, says a Macmillan study.

Photograph: Gordon Scammell /Alamy People with two of the most common forms of. Aerobic activity of light to moderate intensity was the most common type of exercise in the studies of cancer patients. 2, 3, 6, 8, 9 Combining aerobic exercise with walking and resistance training (such as weight lifting or using resistance bands) led to greater health benefits than aerobic activity alone. 2, 6, 8.

Studies are finding that physical activity is linked with a lower risk of developing lung cancer, as well as many other cancers. With lung cancer, the benefit doesn’t seem to be isolated to any one group of people. Men and women, smokers, former smokers, and never smokers, all benefit from exercise. Prostate cancer: Limited evidence from a few epidemiologic studies suggests that physical activity after a prostate cancer diagnosis is associated with a 33% lower risk of death from prostate cancer and a 45% lower risk of death from any cause. This, predictably, led some national newspapers to claim that the secret to preventing these types of cancer was, quite literally, a walk in the park. There’s already lots of good evidence that being physically active can reduce the risk of three types of cancer – bowel cancer, breast cancer after the menopause, and womb cancer.

The result showed that participants who walk regularly have a lower risk of colon cancer. The risk reduces greatly if the habit is done routinely for at least 10 years. We don’t need to walk far away because the researcher believes that its effect on cancer risk is.

There is also evidence from epidemiologic studies that other lifestyle changes, including regular exercise and dietary modification, may also reduce the risk of cancer.

There’s a strong association between exercise and cancer risk reduction, but so far, it is just that—an association, not proven cause and effect.
