Less Colon Polyps with Moderate Exercise

A study published in the British Journal of Cancer found that physical activity can reduce the risk of developing polyps by 16%, and developing large or advance polyps by 30%, and the  risk of colon cancer by 25%.  An analysis of studies involving over 250,000 patients, found less precancerous colon polyps in those individuals who exercised moderately  30 minutes a day.  This benefit was found in both men and women.  Proposed explanations  for this effect is that exercise can boost the immune system and reduces inflammation in the bowel.
