Why You Should Exercise

Fun Runs for Health

In a national  news, an exercise of 1.5 hours a week can reduce risks of different types of cancer including colon, rectum, prostate, endometrium. And, this active lifestyle need not to be extensive as the hours can be broken into three sessions making only a 30 minutes of active workout.

On a study published on the Journal of American Medical Association says that obese people with sedentary life have twice the risk of developing pancreatic cancer as those who are active and not obese. Further, Harvard School of Public states that by mere walking or hiking for at least 1.5 hours a week, can reduce this cancer by 50%.

It is then important that a change in lifestyle, diet and attitude can better motivate us to be proactive and healthier. And, bringing along our friends and/or family to this cause can make the workout more fun and sustaining.
