K.Y. Wolin, et. al., reported on research done at Siteman Cancer Center at Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis in the 2010 CANCER EPIDEMIOLOGY, BIOMARKERS AND PREVENTION.  The report was called, "Change in Physical Activity and Colon Cancer Incidence and Mortality."  The researchers studied more than 150,000 adults and compared exercise levels and colon cancer diagnoses and deaths in that group.

   The researchers found that the lowest risk for diagnosis of or death from colon cancer was in those who had exercised consistently for at least ten years.  They found that not only did exercise reduce the risk of dying from colon cancer, but also reduced the risk for cancer coming back after original diagnosis.

    If you have been looking for a reason to get motivated to exercise, particularly if you or family members have a history of colon cancer, this study certainly supports getting motivated to get moving.   Hypnotherapy can be a valuable tool for a person who wants to start exercising.  Reducing the risk of dying from colon cancer could be just the motivator you need.  Get moving and BE WELL.
