The Copenhagen Male Study and Cancer Prevention

We have heard for years that exercise for cancer prevents cancer, but it is not until a while ago that it has been totally and for sure been proven by researchers that this is true!

In order to be accurate the research had to be conducted over a couple of years. We know exercise helps but medical proof about this has always been a bit dodgy. The effect of something like smoking was very clear compared to the effect of exercising.

 The Copenhagen Male Study, a very important research last year found that regular cancer exercise can help prevent intestinal cancer. It studied the physical exercise habits of over 5000 men over a timeframe of 23 years. Creating this one of the most important study in history. These men were divided into four various levels of exercises - from those who never worked out to those who worked out a lot.

The study turned up some fascinating outcomes about the connection between physical exercise and the growth of cancer. First of all it was found that those who exercised moderately had a stronger resistance to acquiring the disease eventually in life. The head of the study, Dr. Inge Haunstrup Clemmensen from the Cancer Foundation in Denmark believe that the average physical activity came out to strengthen the immune center.

The study revealed that moderate physical exercise played an essential part in preventing all cancers of the digestive tract, but particularly intestinal cancer and esoophagal cancers. It also confirmed that physical exercise was efficient against prostrate and lung cancer.

Exercise stimulated the intestinal tract to move it‚contents through the bowels further, this was one of the information for that. You have probably heard the expression ‚Death begins in the colon.  That pertains to cancers that happen because of putrefied old food and impacted waste that are never moved out of the body. You should keep moving, it speeds up the digestive process and cancer causing agents are not allowed to fester and cause problems, that seems to be the concept.

Experts estimates that one third of fatalities can be attributed to inactive behaviors and bad diet. A normal regimen is so important to get into.. A lot less prone to disease of all kind is a conditioned and fit body.

Working out too difficult is also not a good idea. You can actually cause the immune system to be reduced if you exercise every day in a way that requires a great deal of physical effort. You sometimes seem to cleanse or not feel well after a big exercise, if you are any kind of athlete, you have probably already noticed that. This can be partially because of to picking up infections because your immune system is not as effective.

The great news is that you do not have to be a muscle builder or devote exhaustive hours in the gym to prevent esophageal and colon cancers. All you will have to do is go walking or ride the bike two or three times a week and then also do some kind of weight bearing exercise twice a week. This will maintain your body a little more immune to the harmful toxins in our surroundings that can cause cancer.
