Exercise Lowers Cancer Risk

1593Studies suggest that physically active people have a 20% lower risk of developing cancer than their inactive peers. For example, women who have high estrogen levels have an increased risk of developing breast cancer. However, women can lower their estrogen levels, and their breast cancer risk, by exercising. Exercise also lowers blood pressure, reduces stress, helps you maintain a healthy weight and improves sleep, all of which are important for a healthy body.*

Incorporate more exercise into your day by biking to work, having a walking meeting or walking to your coworker’s desk rather than sending an email. At home, incorporate a walk around your neighborhood after dinner into your nightly routine.
