Mr. Leslie Alford, from the University of East Anglia (Norwich, United Kingdom), studied forty scientific papers published between 2006 and 2010 from all over the world.
Some of the findings of Alford include:
'¢ Regular exercise, either moderate or intense, helps to decrease the risk of coronary heart disease, colon cancer, and strokes -- in all 25 different health conditions.
'¢ Changing from a sedentary lifestyle to one that includes regular physical activity can decrease the risk of getting some types of cancers, along with type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, depression, high blood pressure, and obesity (being extremely overweight).
'¢ Physical activity has also been found to decrease the death rates from some cancers.
