The American Cancer Society has updated its guideline on diet and physical activity for cancer prevention. Staying at a healthy weight, staying active throughout life, following a healthy eating pattern, and avoiding or limiting alcohol may greatly reduce a person's lifetime risk of developing or dying from cancer.
A new observational study shows that taking more steps each day – even if you walk at a regular pace – is linked with living longer.
Getting recommended amounts of physical activity is linked to a lower risk for 7 cancer types, according to a study from the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Research shows that upping your exercise level can pay healthy dividends, even if you’re starting later in life.
