Physical Activity Reduces Colon Cancer Risks | News Brief

Australian investigators suggest that physical activity helps reduce the risk of proximal and distal colon cancers. In a study, the risk of proximal colon cancer was 27% lower among the most physically active participants when compared with the least active. Similar results were seen with risk for distal colon cancer.
