Exercise and Cancer

If you have been dragging your feet about starting an exercise program, here is a little inspiration: Exercise may lower your cancer risk.

According to an article in The New York Times, “Exercise is strongly associated with lowered risks for many types of cancer. In epidemiological studies, people who regularly exercise generally prove to be much less likely to develop or die from the disease than people who do not…a new study (published this month in Cell Metabolism) in mice…suggests that exercise may change how the immune system deals with cancer by boosting adrenaline, certain immune cells and other chemicals that, together, can reduce the severity of cancer or fight it off altogether.”

The study is pretty fascinating so we suggest checking the article out…but basically:

Exercise = Good

Sedentary = Bad

Check out the video links we have provided on the blog, join your local gym, get out for a walk (when it is not pouring…), sign up for a class and commit, start training for a small race, or call the FitTrition team today and get started on a customized workout program. There is no time like the present!
