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.
