Exercise Lowers The Prostate Cancer Risk

Friday, March 05, 2010

A recent study conducted through Duke University clearly demonstrated a reduced risk of prostate cancer in men who exercise. Exercise has been shown to have numerous health benefits and now reduction of prostate cancer risk can be added to the list.
The latest research found that in men who exercised moderately, the equivalent of three or more hours of brisk walking a week, were two-thirds less likely than their sedentary counterparts to have prostate cancer. Of interest also was that among men who did have cancer, those who exercised at least one hour of walking a week, were less likely to have aggressive, faster growing cancers. In other words, men who exercised were less likely to get prostate cancer and if they did get cancer it was easier to cure.
