Man and Women ExercisingThis is pretty astonishing health news about how exercise leads to a much lower risk of developing certain cancers and a significantly lower risk of dying from those cancers.  This study was conducted on men, but experts say that the findings are equally true for women.

Fitness Level Associated with Lower Risk of Some Cancers, Death in Men

CBS Report on Exercise Cures CancerAccording to this recent study published online by (The Journal of the American Medical Association) JAMA Oncology, men with a high cardiovascular respiratory fitness (CRF) level in midlife (age 50) appear to be at lower risk for lung and colorectal cancer, and that higher fitness level also may put them at lower risk of death if they are diagnosed with cancer when they’re older.

The study included 13,949 men who had a baseline fitness exam where CRF was assessed in a treadmill test. Fitness levels were assessed between 1971 and 2009 and lung, prostate and colorectal cancers were assessed using Medicare data from 1999 to 2009.MetaBooster

  • The authors found that high CRF in midlife was associated with a 55% lower risk of lung cancer and a 44% lower risk of colorectal cancer compared to men with low CRF.
  • The study also found that high CRF in midlife was associated with a 32% lower risk for cancer death among men who developed lung, colorectal or prostate cancer at Medicare age compared with men with low CRF. 
  • And, high CRF in midlife was associated with a 68% reduction in CVD (Cardio Vascular Death) compared with low CRF among men who developed cancer.

Exercise Cures Cancer on CBSPart of the takeaway from this report is that only 15 minutes of high cardio exercise that raises the heart rate 50% is all you need on a regular basis to reap these benefits.  So, 15 minutes of high CRF a day can not only benefit the heart and lungs, but also save lives, and prevent or possibly even cure cancer.

The results of this study were a topic on CBS This Morning (Friday, March 27th), and they went on to report that two other studies reflected similar results.

“A recent publication in ‘The Journal of the National Cancer Institute’ described the effect of exercise on breast cancer in mice. Researchers observed that mice with hypoxic cancer cells, those with a reduced supply of oxygen, actually fared worse than mice with cells containing healthy supplies of oxygen. Chemotherapy drugs and radiation, the study notes, are more effective with oxygen."  According to this report people with cancer who exercise do better overall.  It reduces inflammation and enhances oxygen and blood supply.

VitaFruit is loaded with Carotenoids

In 2009, the "Annals of Epidemiology" journal published a study of nearly 1,000 Finnish men who were observed for an over 12-year period. That study suggested "higher circulating concentrations of lycopene" could contribute to lower risk of certain cancers.”  Lycopene is a carotenoid, which are beneficial phytonutrients that create yellow, orange and red pigments in some fruits and vegetables, like carrots and tomatoes. When nutrients like Lycopene are more efficiently circulated throughout the body, their benefits are multiplied.  VitaFruit is loaded with Carotenoids, like Lycopene.
