Exercise’ means nothing more than moving our body.
Brisk walking is a great form of exercise.
Physical activity at work contributes to lowering the risk of colon cancer.

Take a flight of stairs instead of elevator. Take the family for a walk two or three evenings a week, instead of turning on the TV. Mow your own lawn. Rake your own leaves. Push your own snow blower. Exercise your imagination.

There are thousands of things you can do to increase physical activity and reduce your risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. Add more of the ‘exercise of daily living’ to your life.

Even simple walks near our residence, playing with our children in a park, etc is exercise and will be beneficial.

We don’t have to join a club to participate in exercise that will reduce our risk of chronic disease. Even leisure-time walking has been shown to reduce inflammation, and adding dietary supplementation provides anti-inflammatory benefits.
