 Prostate Cancer Risk can be Reduced by Regular Exercise

Regular exercise can help keep prostate cancer at bay, a new study has revealed.

According to researchers at Duke University Medical Centre, those who were moderately active - anything equivalent to walking at a moderate pace for several hours a week - were significantly less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer.

They analysed 190 men who had a prostate biopsy and found that 58 percent of the men exercised less than the equivalent of one hour per week of easy walking, reports chinaview.cn

The study also showed that exercise was associated with less aggressive disease in men who did develop prostate cancer.

"As the amount of exercise increased, the risk of cancer decreased," said lead author Dr. Jodi Antonelli, a urology researcher at the centre. (ANI)
