 Best exercises to fight colon cancer

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Colon cancer is one of the most common types of cancer, and the fourth leading cause of cancer death worldwide.

You can take steps to reduce your risk of colon cancer by making changes in your daily life by getting at least 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week.

Aerobic exercise, exercise and movement are important factors to avoid colon cancer, especially as they carry important benefits for the

 heart in light of maintaining a healthy weight. If you do not exercise, start now with simple exercises and gradually increase your activity.

Exercise reduces the risk of colon cancer

A study conducted by researchers at the Cancer Center at Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes Hospital in St.

 Louis showed that physical activity and exercise reduce the odds of developing colon cancer, and can make the disease less strong, after infection.

 Researchers at the University of Washington worked with colleagues from the American Cancer Society to look at whether changes in physical activity were influenced by either colon cancer diagnoses or the risk of dying from it.

For its part, the German Association for the Aid of Cancer Patients confirmed that exercising for 30 to 60 minutes a day reduces the risk

 of colon cancer, pointing out that the more physical activity and its intensity, the greater its positive effect.

The German association attributed the reason for this to the fact that the increased exercise of motor activities stimulates the metabolism, which in turn contributes to strengthening the immune system.

 In addition, locomotor activities reduce inflammatory processes inside the body and prevent weight gain, which is primarily among the factors that stimulate the emergence of colon cancers. 

In general, the German Association for the Assistance of Cancer Patients indicated that people who exercise a lot of physical activities

 are usually in better health than others who practice them at a small rate, especially if they adhere to this in addition to a balanced diet.

high intensity exercises

A recent study, according to the American Cancer Society, found that high-intensity exercise reduces the growth of colon cancer cells.

walking and yoga

The study, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, showed that people with colon cancer who did four or more hours of light exercise per week experienced a significant 20 percent reduction in colon cancer death rates.

According to Professor Jeffrey Mehrhardt, a researcher at Dana-Farber Medical Center, the results of the study showed a significant improvement in the development of colon cancer in patients who exercised lightly.

Research shows that more than 28 hours per week of walking, yoga and other light exercises may help extend the survival time of people with colon cancer.
