Fit middle-aged men ‘at lower risk for some cancers’

The Sindh Times Web Desk Mar. 29: Very fit men in their late 40s are less likely to get lung cancer and colorectal cancer than unfit men, a study in JAMA Oncology suggests.
Their high fitness levels also appear to increase their chances of surviving cancer if they are diagnosed later on.
University of Vermont researchers said even small improvements in fitness could help to reduce cancer risk.
Cancer Research UK said investigating links between men’s fitness levels and cancer risk was a new approach.
