6/ IT REDUCES RISK OF SERIOUS CANCERS

To better understand the role of fitness in cancer prevention, researchers at the National Cancer Institute analysed data from 1.4 million people who reported their physical-activity levels over a period of 11 years.  People who were more active had a 20% lower risk of certain serious cancers, including cancer of the esophagus, lung, kidney, stomach and endometrium, according to a study published in May.  This builds on earlier research showing that exercise can significantly reduce the risk of colorectal and other cancers.
