Exercise regularly.

You can reduce your risk for some types of cancers by increasing your physical activity. The American Institute for Cancer Research recommends being physically active every day for at least 30 minutes.

A new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that leisure-time physical activity was associated with a decreased risk of 13 specific types of cancer including colon cancer, breast cancer, endometrial cancer, esophageal cancer, liver cancer, stomach cancer, kidney cancer, and myeloid leukemia. In addition, physical activity was strongly associated with a decreased risk of multiple myeloma, a blood cancer, as well as cancers of the head and neck, rectum, bladder, and lung (in current and former smokers).

Exercise Benefits Cancer Survivors Too

Studies suggest that cancer survivors who exercise regularly may experience less fatigue and fewer symptoms after treatment, compared to those who do not get regular exercise. Even light activities, such as a daily walk, can provide benefits. The American Cancer Society  recommends that cancer survivors get 30 to 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise at least five days each week.

So whatever you do, try to make some form of exercise a part of your daily routine.
