In recent years there have been a great many studies looking at the effects of exercise and the likelihood of developing cancer.
There is now good evidence that people who are physically active do have a lower risk of developing cancer of the colon (part of the bowel) and cancer of the breast. For colon cancer, where the evidence is strongest, it has been suggested that people whose life includes some moderate exercise have half the risk of developing the cancer compared to those lead an entirely sedentary existence.
For a number of other cancers, including prostate cancer, cancer of the womb and testicular cancer, the figures are less certain with some reports showing exercise is beneficial and others showing no difference.
In over 200 reports, however, there have been none suggesting that exercise increases cancer risk. So as moderate exercise is good for us anyway, reducing the risk of conditions like heart disease and diabetes, it makes sense to keep active.
