Lower Your Cancer Risk with This Exercise Secret! (EASY)
That’s the number of people who will receive a cancer diagnosis by the end of this year, according to Cancer.org.
That’s the number of people who will die from cancer.
Numbers don’t lie, and those numbers tell me that cancer is still winning.
That’s why it’s so important to take whatever steps you can—big or small—to avoid getting cancer in the first place.
A recent study from the International Journal of Cancer revealed a key morning activity that could lower your risk of either breast or prostate cancer by as much as 25 percent.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Exercise is typically associated with heart benefits… but it could be just as important for lowering your cancer risk.
Studies have shown that exercise can reduce the risk of 13 different types of cancer—likely because it helps control weight and insulin, and it strengthens your immune system.
But now that the exercise/cancer link has been established, researchers are starting to dig deeper.
I’ve told you before about a study that evaluated the best kind of exercise for older people.
You might recall they found that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) had the best impact on fitness, improved quality of life, and even longevity.
For this latest study published in the Journal of Cancer, researchers had a different question:
Does when you exercise impact cancer risk?
When it comes to your body, timing is everything.
Your body has an internal clock—its circadian rhythm—that affects every process in your body.
Past studies have shown that people with a disrupted circadian rhythm (like those who work night work) have an increased risk of cancer.
This is especially the case with breast and prostate cancer.
Past studies have also shown that exercising during the day can improve your circadian rhythm.
Based on this information, researchers wondered if when you exercised could impact your cancer risk.
Researchers analyzed data from 2,795 people for five years.
Ultimately, they found that people who exercised between 8:00 am and 10:00 am had the greatest reduction in breast or prostate cancer.
Based on a model the researchers developed, here’s what they found:
- The odds of developing breast cancer were potentially 25 percent lower due to morning exercise
- The odds of developing prostate cancer were 27 percent lower in the morning exercise group (compared to those who didn’t exercise)
There could be two reasons for this protective effect.
One, high levels of estrogen have been linked to breast cancer, and exercise can lower estrogen levels.
Two, melatonin can help protect against cancer, but exercising later in the day can delay melatonin production.
Whatever the reason, we know that exercise can help prevent cancer… and it’s possible that exercising in the morning can give you the best protective bang for your buck.
And if you’re doing HIIT training in the morning, you could be benefitting even more.

There are two words that send shivers down everyone’s spine: Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a condition that’s characterized by a buildup of toxic beta-amyloid plaques in your brain. They interfere with the communication between neurons in your brain, and they lead to the death of neurons. It’s a devastating double-whammy. But a recent study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that nature’s “green secret” could be...
Overall, cancer is on the decline. That’s the good news. But the bad news is that it could be declining MUCH faster than it actually is. Nearly 10 million people still die every year from this disease. But there’s one simple step you can take — starting today — to help keep you from being one of those 10 million. It’ll help you beat the “biggest...
Whether you have type 2 diabetes or not, you should be paying attention to your blood sugar levels. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, high blood sugar levels can increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, nerve problems, and more — even if you don’t have diabetes. Fortunately, you don’t have to swear off...
COVID-19 is finally on the decline — and it’s about time. As we speak, mask-wearing mandates are being lifted in many states. But that doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. In fact, it means you need to be taking even more steps on your own to make sure you’re protected. Like loading up on one key nutrient that could decrease your risk of severe complications if you ever do get COVID-19. A...
Alzheimer’s is devastating for the patient AND for his or her loved ones. Although there is no cure, many recent studies have offered a ray of hope for everyone affected by this disease — whether you’re the patient or their loved one. In fact, in one recent study, researchers identified a natural compound that can reverse some of the most devastating memory effects of Alzheimer’s. It’s one of the biggest breakthroughs...
Let’s face it, we all know people who “look great for their age.” Well, here’s a crazy idea: What if we took our biological age and threw it out the window. Because frankly, instead of accepting aging as a part of life, I’d rather focus on vitality at any age (NOT vitality despite my age!). There are plenty of lifestyle change you can...
Make no mistake about it: Medicine is big business. I wish most doctors and medical organizations made decisions based on the patient’s best interests — as opposed to the bottom line… But too often that’s not the case. What does that mean for you? It means you could be counseled to get a procedure or a surgery that you DON’T need. Because let’s face it, mainstream...
When it comes to COVID-19, you should be doing whatever it takes to lower your risk — especially if you’re an older adult. According to the CDC, 8 out of 10 COVID-19 deaths have been in people over 65. And, compared to people 5-17 years old, the rate of death in folks from 65-74 is 1300 TIMES HIGHER. That’s not a typo. But whatever your age, you can do...
There’s no doubt that what you eat impacts your physical health. But food’s impact on your mental and emotional wellbeing is just as powerful. There are plenty of reasons for this connection. A big one is because your gut contains neurons, and serotonin (the neurotransmitter that’s involved in depression and anxiety) is particularly abundant in your gut. Personally, I find that fascinating. Plus,...
You know by now that type 2 diabetes can increase your risk of heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease, nerve damage, amputations, and much more. But if you “only” have pre-diabetes, you might be tempted to think that you’re in the clear. Not so fast. Why? Because a recent study found out that these hidden dangers of pre-diabetes could be just as deadly as diabetes itself. Prediabetes is considered...
