Adding evidence that exercise is a potent cancer prevention tool

Compelling evidence suggests exercise is an important component of cancer prevention and care; slashing your risk of developing cancer, improving your chances of successful recuperation, and diminishing your risk of cancer recurrence.

A pattern revealed in these studies is that the longer you exercise, the more pronounced the benefits. Studies show that both men and women who exercise during their early years have a lower risk of cancer later in life.

But like most things in life, exercise must also be done in moderation and be balanced. There is a sweet spot and excessive exercise can cause its own set of issues, but most in the U.S. are far from being at risk for this problem.

According to a 2003 paper1 published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise,"more than 100 epidemiologic studies on the role of physical activity and cancer prevention have been published."
