NEW YORK: Getting the recommended amount of physical activity is linked to a reduced risk of seven types of cancer, researchers have found.

The study, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, analyzed data from more than 750,000 adults in the United States, Europe and Australia and found that recommended amounts of physical activity correlated with lower risks of seven types of cancer.

“Physical activity guidelines have largely been based on their impact on chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease and diabetes,” said Indian-origin researcher Alpa Patel from the American Cancer Society.

“These data provide strong support that these recommended levels are important to cancer prevention, as well,”

While it’s long been known that physical activity is associated with a lower risk of several cancers, less clear has been the shape of the relationship and whether recommended amounts of physical activity are associated with lower risk.
