Physical Fitness and Protection Against Lung and Bowel Cancer.

Physical Fitness and Protection Against Lung and Bowel Cancer.
22nd May 2019 James Burroughs

A recent study of a large and diverse group of people supports the idea that being physically fit can help protect against some cancers ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€

The analysis of this study also linked higher fitness before diagnosis to better survival rate among those who did develop lung or colorectal cancer ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

The study found that the fittest individuals had a 77% lower risk of developing lung cancer and a 61% reduced risk of developing colorectal cancer compared to the least fittest ๐Ÿ’จ

The study also revealed that among individuals diagnosed with lung or colorectal cancer, those with the highest level of cardio respiratory fitness had a reduced risk of dying during the follow up of 44% and 89% respectively ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€

The study used data on 49,143 health system patients who had undergone exercise stress tests of fitness between 1991 and 2009 ๐Ÿ“…
