    Yeap, I'm wondering does exercise REALLY prevent cancer as those studies said.
    I've been googling about it and reports always say things like "studies believes that lack of exercise might cause cancer".
    Or is it just genetics?

    What's your say?

    EDIT: The main reason why I'm asking this because I've known people whom are physically active in sports and exercise; yet they contracted cancer. Some even stage 4 cancer. Thus, prompting me to start this thread... not because I just want to ask something stupid. lol.

    I don't think lack of exercise has anything to do with cancer. Of course, if you don't work-out, then you may not have a healthy body, but I don't think it has any direct relation with cancer.

    I have met quite a few cancer patients in my lifetime (couple of them happened to be my friends) and it has been a learning experience. Some of them were recovering from their disease while their were others who just never improved and died because the cancer cells spread across their body. I personally met a patient who successfully overcame cancer. I asked him that what was the prime reason that he survived, Was it healthy foods or medical assistance or regular exercise? He replied that everything lies in mind. I never gave up till end. Medications won't work unless you believe that they would work. He believed that he would survive and live a happy life again with his family. This was the single most vital reason responsible for his recovery.

    Recent studies have shown that Diet is the most important factor. In particular keeping at an ideal weight and occasional fasting. Not anorexia stuff just keeping an eye on your weight and occasionally a controlled fast has been shown to be regenerative.

    A mate of mine is a doctor and he reckons that hereditary factors are also massive.

    As for exercise I dont think it will prevent major illnesses but you will feel a lot better while you are alive.

    I concur about the diet aspect you pointed out. It does have a sizable impact upon our health.

    No, you need to eat healthy, get sunlight, and workout.

    You can't eat cancerous McDonalds, drink cancerous soda, and expect to not get cancer.
    just like, you can't eat fruits and vegetables, and sit at the computer all day.

    You need to workout, eat healthy, and get the vitamins from the sun. I know people who have battled, cancer, and most of it can be fought off by natural remedies, and just begin healthy. You can't do one without the other.
    If you get 15 minutes of sun a day, eat healthy, and workout, I guarantee you will outlive a lot of humans in this generation.
    If you are confused, or wana know more, hit me up. I am a nutcase when it comes to this stuff.

    The answer is no and the most positive answer you can ever find with some basis is it MAY help.

    In book and movie The Secret it shown how people cured cancer just by their thoughts and thats true.

    Because cells reproduces and make new cells time by time, and actually i think it was 7 years till all cells are new, so after 7 years we get brand new body without old cells in us.
    And cancer is cell which reproduces etc.

    Also water is crucial, because its being proven that water contains some information, good or bad, there was experiment.

    2 bottles, and on 1 was written some bad words and on other bottle was written good words. Those bottles was filled with water and they was left somewhere, after some time scientists looked whats inside bottles and how watter looks under microscope and results were stunning, bottle and watter with bad words on it was all kind of craps and bacterias and on other battle, water was still clear without any craps.

    So yeah thoughts and words can help, because we are filled with 70% water.

    Cancer has to do with diet or genes. The reason its spreading so widely is pesticides being used in huge amount where food is grown.

    Exercise can help slow down the whole process but it cant kill it.

    Yes in a way it does, it relieves a lot of stress. And stress Is one of cancers best friends. Try nootropics nootrohealth I usually get probiotics and 5htp. Exercise and eating well surprisingly is underrated

    Not sure about exercise but I've heard that meditation does help in preventing cardiovascular diseases including cancer.

    First of all, we all, humans, have cancer cells inside us, it's just a matter of your lifestyle whether you activate them or not.
    Also, some people are completely immune to such diseases, though that's very rare.

    Physical activities is just one aspect of healthy lifestyle. Do not forget to eat healthy too and always skip foods with artificial additives etc. Then there's stress that can damage your immune system quickly. Oh, and, of course, sleep is vital to your life.

    So yeah, do not spend your nights in front of a computer, instead, exercise regularly, eat healthy and think positively.

    I suggest you read a book called Anticancer by David Servan Schreiber. The author himself had a deadly brain cancer of which, after 20 years of living with it, he died.

    Actually there are different kinds of cancer, some resulting from lifestyle, others are genetic. Its difficult to answer your question for leukemia and for colon cancer. Some people answered that you can cure cancer just by fighting it mentally.. while I agree that for some it is crucial, that wasn't really the question in the OP.

    I think doing exercise will indeed decrease the chances of getting some kinds of cancer, but then there are lots of different factors, so yes and no.

    I think it's just you're unlucky if you had cancer. I know people who smoke a lot, drink a lot, stress their selves a lot and the seldom get sickness or any health related problems, there are some who are physically fit and die young.

    It's better to stick on which you feel good about yourself. If you feel good doing exercises then f*cking do it. If you feel hard doing it then don't do it :).

    Just my 2 cents. :D

    Its not true - some cells dont reproduce. For example cells in your brain - neurons. Also it dont work like all cells reproduce and in 7 years we get new body. Some cells reproduce faster, some slower, some never. You are older and cells reproduce slower. Why we are dying? because cells reproduce slower and slower. Cancer cells reproduce super fast and here is problem. In one year your whole body can be filled with cancer cells. About all experiments you told - pubmed.com its one of the best places where you can look for medical info.

    Dont belive in that. I was studying on medical academy and it sounds like 2 backlinks per day or google will ban your site. Water = H20 + some microelements. Bacteries etc are much bigger than water molecules or minerals. Lets say you have bottle and you put inside pure water, after 2 weeks you have tons of bacteries inside. Why? Because bacteries where in that water. If you put 100% pure watter to bottle (no bacteries inside) its not possible to get find bacteries in that watter after 2 weeks.

    Exercises dont prevent cancer but prevent many other diseases.

    How you can prevent cancer?

    [h=1]C-reactive protein (CRP) - you can check its level in simple blood test. CRP is higher when in your body is nearly ANY inflammation (also cancer). Cancer often dont give any signals you can feel but you can see them in blood. Its hard to prevent cancer but if you will check CRP regularly you can find early any cancer process (and many other diseases) in your body and you get high chances of winning every disease, even cancer :)[/h]
    Sorry for big letters i just wanted to help and sorry for my english :)

    With all respect, where did you read this because it seems that the writer was in mood to troll readers. This is too good to be true. I do agree that thoughts and words have a great impact on our life, but this experiment or research whatever one says, doesn't sound to be true.

    Oh it's written in a book, indeed it must be true. Why do we all even waste our time with IM? Just print money with your thoughts. This could be the next best-selling WSO.

    The thing is you can't club cancer in to one single thing.

    Cancer is of various types and each with its sets of risk factors.

    A risk factor is simply a factor that when present increases the likelihood of a disease.

    So, when you say not exercising is a risk factor for cancer as noticed by studies done, you have to agree with that. Note that some types of cancers would have it as a risk factor while others may not.
