Ride Away from Colon Cancer

Although there are ample reasons to make exercise a part of your daily life, here is yet another one: it can reduces your risk of growing polyps in the colon, which can lead to colon cancer. As little as one hour of low-intensity exercise every week, such as taking a stroll or riding a bike, can make a difference, according to new research presented this month at Digestive Disease Week in Chicago. The study has yet to be published in a peer-reviewed journal. African-Americans and people who are overweight or obese face an increased risk of colon cancer and colon polyps.
