Exercise can reduce risks of certain cancers in women

More physical activity could reduce cases of cancers such as bowel, breast and womb by 12,000 a year, research has suggested. The UK has the tenth highest rate of cancers linked to lack of exercise in the world, and the research recommends healthier lifestyles as a way to better protect women against the women.

According to the report, ‘just 36% of British women meet the government’s recommended physical activity guidelines of at least 30 minutes of moderate activity five days a week. After not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight is the best thing to do to reduce cancer risk.’
