In a study done by cancer prevention researcher Anne McTiernan at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, findings show that regular daily exercise could help prevent cancer.

‘We have such an epidemic of obesity and lack of exercise, which is one reason I've gravitated to exercise and weight control.’ said McTiernan.

From the article: Taking steps toward cancer prevention some of researcher Anne McTiernan’s findings were:

‘overweight post-menopausal women who exercised for 45 minutes five days a week, whittled away unhealthy belly fat and lowered their estrogen and testosterone levels, hormones that in excess can contribute to cancer. Another study showed that exercise six days a week brought both sexes significant fat loss and a lowered risk of colon cancer in men.’

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s website states it :

‘is a world leader in research to prevent, detect and treat cancer and other life-threatening diseases,’

The institute has a multitude of scientific projects going on. To visit their projects go to: Science Projects
