Exercise cuts risk of cervical cancer

Surprisingly enough, exercise cuts the risk of cervical cancer. Research studies show that women who are more physically active have a substantially lower incidence of cervical cancer than sedentary women. It may be because active women tend to be leaner. Since body fat produces estrogen, heavier women tend to be at a higher risk for hormone-dependent cancers, including cervical cancer. To lower your risk, simply get moving. Try taking daily walks, join a gym, play with Frisbee, walk with your dog--as long as it gets you moving on a daily basis, you’ll strengthen your protection.
