Fight cancer at the gym

Taller people are more likely to get cancer.

For every four inches above five feet you are, there’s a 16% increased cancer risk, according to a new study from Oxford University

 

 

Which means a 5ft 9in (175cm) man has a 32-40% increased risk. Obviously you can’t fight it by getting shorter – but you can reduce your cancer risk with a little old-fashioned sweat.

A study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found doing 30 minutes of intense exercise a day reduces your cancer risk by an average of 50%.

It’s a great way to fight back against the big C, whatever your height.
