Lifestyle changes could prevent a third of cancer

Lifestyle changes could prevent a third of cancers: report: “Mandate walking and cycling paths that encourage physical activity.”

The American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund released a report yesterday that exercise and diet play a major role in cancer prevention. The report calls on governments to mandate more bike and walking trails, among other things.

This is just something many of us outdoor nuts have talked about for years. People are more healthy when they get outside and exercise. Now, get outside and enjoy a hike in a local park! Your health may depend on it.
