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.’
