Risk For Cancer Lowered By Diet and Exercise

This article presents several studies related to the risk for cancer lowered by diet control and exercise. Breast cancer risk in older women may be reduced by exercise, which lowers estrogen levels, according to research from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. The risk of developing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system that is inexplicably on the rise, may be linked to diet. Diets high in protein and saturated fat may impair immunity, the researchers say. Natural compounds in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and kale have the ability to interrupt the out-of-control reproduction of colon cancer cells in much the same way as some anti-cancer drugs.
