Overview

Prospective studies were carried out to examine the relationship between physical activity and the incidence of cancer. Convincing evidence exists for an association between physical activity and the prevention of colon and breast cancer. Probable evidence can be found in prostate cancer and less so in lung cancer.

Key words:
exercise – prevention of cancer – cancer of colon, breast, prostate and lungs.
