Health Study Shows Exercise Reduces Bowel Cancer Risk

  
  
  

A new study, shows that exercise is good for more than just weight loss and general wellness.An exercise routine is healthy According to researchers at the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR) and the University of Western Australia (UWA), colorectal cancer risk may be diminished by vigorous physical activity. These findings provide additional reason for individuals to incorporate fitness and cross training into their lifestyles.

MedicalXpress writes that the study observed nearly 900 participants with bowel cancer and examined a control group of 966 people without bowel cancer. The study determined a 40 percent reduction in the risk for distal cancer in individuals that participated in vigorous exercise spanning a lifetime. The findings placed greater emphasis on the importance of physical activity later in life.

Terry Boyle, a UWA PhD student, noted that the study strengthened previous research on bowel cancer and its ties to recreational activity. According to Boyle, “These results suggest that vigorous activity like jogging, cycling, swimming, tennis, hockey, netball and football may be the most effective physical activities to lower the risk of bowel cancer.”

While well-established fitness schedules are often aligned with aesthetic purposes, the findings of this study add teeth to the popular opinion that consistent lifetime exercise contributes to wellness.

Do you maintain an exercise regimen? What motivates you to stay on track?
