Physical inactivity raises risk of certain cancers
Physical inactivity raises risk of certain cancers (June 18, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Germany - According to research published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, being physically inactive can raise risk of certain cancers. Researchers conducted a meta-analysis comprised of over 40 studies, nearly 4 million individuals and nearly 70,000 cancer cases. They found that for every 2-hour increase in sedentary time, risk of colon cancer increased by 8% and 10% for endometrial cancer. When people with the highest levels of physical inactivity were compared to those with the lowest, they were found to be at significantly increased risk of lung, endometrial and colon cancer.
