By making aerobic exercise a habit, the risk of cancer can be significantly reduced

Cancer is considered to be the second leading cause of death in the world, but it is very easy to avoid it, a new medical study has revealed.

By making aerobic exercise a habit, the risk of cancer can be significantly reduced.

This was revealed in a new medical study.

In this study, the medical data of 2734 people was reviewed for 20 years.

Researchers found that people who are accustomed to aerobic exercise, such as running, have a 72 percent lower risk of metastatic cancer.

In the second phase of the study, experiments were carried out on mice.

Blood cancer cells were inserted into these mice, but they were given aerobic exercises before and after the cells were inserted.

The researchers discovered that the rate of diagnosis of cancerous tumors in exercising mice was significantly lower than in others.

According to the research, exercise caused metabolic changes in the use of glucose in the body of mice, which indicates that increasing the demand for glucose in the internal organs does not fuel cancerous cells for growth.

According to experts, it is not possible for every person to do strenuous exercises like running, but moderate exercise such as brisk walking can also help prevent cancer.

He said that several research reports have revealed evidence that physical activities such as brisk walking reduce the risk of many types of cancer.

Earlier in August, research published in the journal The Lancet showed that the death rate from such types of cancer is increasing worldwide, which can be easily prevented.

The study found that smoking, alcohol use or excess body weight are the three biggest factors that cause cancer.

Researchers said that the results have proved that it is possible to prevent most cases of cancer globally, while early diagnosis and effective treatment can also reduce the death rate.

The researchers acknowledged that not all cancer cases or deaths can be prevented, but avoiding smoking and alcohol, maintaining a healthy body weight, avoiding excessive sunlight, and a balanced diet can reduce the risk of this deadly disease.
