Sensible And Active Lifestyle Can Help Prevent Colon Cancer


Researchers are saying regular exercise and a diet low in protein and high in plant foods and low-fat dairy products may reduce your risk of colon cancer.

Of some nine lifestyle factors looked at, engaging in high levels of physical activity emerged as the leading protective step you can take against colon cancer, according to a study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

Health Research Center scientists in Salt Lake City looked at 2,000 colon cancer patients and 2,400 controls living in Northern California, Utah and Minnesota to determine the association between lifestyle and the disease.
While exercise is the No. 1 preventive measure, the researchers found that regular intake of calcium and low-fat dairy foods also reduces the colon cancer risk. The lifestyle use of such drugs as aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and, among women, hormone replacement therapy, also appears to be beneficial, according to the study.

We all know that physical activity and a moderate diet are generally good for your health - but it's always useful to hear of specific diseases that a sensible lifestyle can help prevent.
