Even for Men at High Risk, Healthy Living May Help Prevent Colon Cancer


Many lives could be saved if people avoided alcohol and smoking, ate better and stayed active, researchers report

While it’s well known that healthy living can lower the odds for colon cancer, a new study finds it’s even true for men whose DNA puts them at high risk for the disease.

Components of a healthy lifestyle include exercise, proper nutrition, no smoking and reduced alcohol consumption, the study authors said.

An expert in colon health who reviewed the findings believes there’s a lesson here for anyone bent on lowering their cancer risk.

“I think these lifestyle factors are things that everyone should strive to achieve if they can — everyone can benefit,” said Dr. Andrew Chan, associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston.

31 Million Older Americans Aren’t Getting Enough Exercise


Inactivity boosts their risk for falls, broken bones, serious disease and early death, CDC warns

More than one-quarter of Americans over 50 don’t exercise, a new federal report estimates, increasing their risk for heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

“Adults benefit from any amount of physical activity,” said study co-author Janet Fulton. “Helping inactive people become more physically active is an important step towards healthier and more vibrant communities.” Fulton is chief of the Physical Activity and Health Branch at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Building Muscle Could Boost the Body’s Most Important Muscle


People with heart disease should prioritize weight training over weight loss, study says

Having more muscle and less fat reduces the risk of early death in people with heart disease, a new study suggests.

Doctors should encourage patients to do resistance exercises as part of a healthy lifestyle, rather than emphasizing and monitoring weight loss, the study authors advised.

For the study, data was analyzed from more than 6,400 Americans with heart disease.

The investigators found that people with higher amounts of muscle and lower levels of body fat were less likely to die of heart problems or any other causes than those in three other groups based on body composition. The groups were: low muscle/high fat; low muscle/low fat; or high muscle/high fat.

VITAMIN C – What you need to know


Good for a Cold? Your immune system needs vitamin C to work right. But extra won’t help you avoid a cold, unless maybe you’re an extreme athlete, live in a very cold place, or you just need more anyway. Supplements might shorten a cold or ease its symptoms — if you were taking them before you got sick.

Prevents Cell Damage Vitamin C helps you get rid of chemicals that damage your cells and DNA. It’s considered an antioxidant: It neutralizes “free radicals” in your body created by pollution, cigarette smoke, sunlight, radiation, and simply turning food into energy. That could help keep many parts of your body working better for longer and protect you from diseases, including Alzheimer’s and cancer.
