Researchers recently found that a high level of cardio respiratory activity was linked to a much lower risk of lung and colon cancer in middle-aged men. Older men diagnosed with cancer also lowered their risk of dying if they maintained or started to do a high(er) level of fitness.

None of which is in any way surprising of course.

Past studies and decades of real life experience have already shown us beyond the shadow of a doubt that exercise and other healthy lifestyle choices greatly curb the risk of colon, breast, uterus, lung and prostate cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and plenty of other sources.

You can add to that the myriad of additional health and longevity benefits of adopting a life rich in physical activity and healthy food.

Susan G. Lakoski, MD, of the Vermont Cancer Center at the University of Vermont in Burlington, whom led this study had the following to say, in regards to this particular study.

“There is an inverse association between midlife cardiorespiratory fitness [a high CRF capacity] and incident lung and colorectal cancer but not prostate cancer,”
“High mid-life CRF is associated with lower risk of death in those diagnosed as having cancer at Medicare age.”
