Subject:exercise and cancer

Hi,

 

There is so much hype about exercise preventing cancer. 

Are there any statistics that show remission periods for those who exercise and those who don't? 

I do exercise regularly, but it is a time consuming pain in the neck. I missed out on the endorphin that I hear make one like to exercise.

Dear Janie,

If I had to list all the research that has shown that exercise prevents cancer, I would be typing for the next week. FORTUNATELY, there is evidence that proves exercise plays a large role in cancer prevention. Many easy to read summaries of this research exist  on the web. Just google exercise and cancer prevention. Now, about that missing gene exercise doesn't have to be hard work.  Change it up. Go hiking or walking one day (the weather is great for that nowadays), ride a bicycle with a friend, join a gym where you can choose between working out by yourself or  joining a class (pilates, yoga, water werobics, spinning). Burn some really great music onto your MP3 player, and sing along. Most important of all, don't think of exercise as a "pain in the neck". Think of it as a great opportunity to give cancer the slip, while doing something great for your self.
