MEN ON THE MOVE

Alternative Medicine - - Health News & Tips -

A re­cent study found that among a large group of men di­ag­nosed with lo­cal­ized prostate can­cer, those who were more phys­i­cally ac­tive ex­pe­ri­enced lower rates of both prostate-can­cer-spe­cific mor­tal­ity and over­all mor­tal­ity. Although an in­di­vid­ual’s sur­vival de­pends on a va­ri­ety of fac­tors, phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity is one of those fac­tors that can be mod­i­fied. Those who saw the great­est ben­e­fits walked or cy­cled for at least 20 min­utes each day, and showed a 39 per­cent de­creased risk of death from the can­cer and a 30 per­cent de­creased risk of death over­all.
