Originally published in icon Issue 1 2007

CRUK have shown that exercise – they cite the gym, walking briskly, or even cleaning the kitchen floor and vacuuming – is a factor in reducing colon cancer.  413,000 people from 10 European countries were studied and the physically active were 22% less likely to develop colon cancer –1 hour a day was recommended.  (Ed: Be careful.  People who go to the gym probably smoke less and eat more healthily too!)
