Physical Activity Increases Survival Rates for Prostate Cancer Patients

Volume 14    |   Issue 16

If you or a loved one has prostate cancer, there's something you can do that will lower risk of dying from the disease by up to 61%. And it's free!

Unfortunately, this "something" you have to do isn't very exciting. It's simply exercise. But this research is so impressive, getting over your hatred of exercise could save your life.

You've heard me say it many times. The best form of exercise is interval training. But that doesn't mean that lower forms of exercise are worthless. This new report on men with prostate cancer shows the power of even low-exertion exercise.

In this report, researchers studied more than 1,400 men diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer. They looked to compare how their exercise habits might affect their ability to control the cancer. The results are truly amazing. Even simply walking made a difference.

Men who walked briskly (not leisurely) for at least three hours a week were 57% less likely to have their cancer progress than those who walked less often and less vigorously. And what about more vigorous forms of exercise? Men diagnosed with localized prostate cancer that had not spread had an unbelievable 61% lower chance of dying from their cancer. All they did to see these results was engage in vigorous exercise at least three hours each week compared to men who vigorously exercised less than one hour a week.

What's more, these statistics aren't limited just to prostate cancer. Every disease is much better controlled when you combine the treatment with exercise. I can certainly understand how different disorders might make it very hard to exercise vigorously. But most people, no matter what disease they are battling, can at least take a brisk walk for an hour just three times per week. And if it can do that much for people with a disease, it also can do a lot for those who aren't fighting a disease. If you're a couch potato, make this the year that you change. How often can you find something this powerful that's free?

Yours for better health,
