Released on the occasion of World Cancer Day on Friday, the report said that participating in moderate intensity aerobic physical activities for at least 150 minutes a week for people over 18 years of age and 60 minutes a day for people in the 5 to 17-age group will reduce the risk of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) including cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

"Physical activity has a strong role to play in reducing the incidence of certain cancers. Physical inactivity is the fourth leading risk factor for all global deaths, with 31 percent of the world's population not physically active", WHO assistant director-general for Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health, Ala Alwan said.
