Unformatted text preview: Overall Overall Benefits of Physical Activity US Surgeon General’s Report on Physical Activity and Health (1996) Physical http://www.cdc.gov/NCCDPHP/sgr/contents.htm The main message is that Americans can substantially The improve their health and quality of life by including moderate amounts of physical activity in their daily lives lives Underpinning such recommendations is a growing understanding of how physical activity affects physiologic function. The risks associated with physical activity must also be considered. Despite common knowledge that exercise is healthful, more than 60 percent of American adults are not regularly active, and 25 percent of the adult population are not active at all. Moreover, although many people have enthusiastically embarked on vigorous exercise programs at one time or another, most do not sustain their participation. The effort to understand how to promote more active lifestyles is of great importance to the health of this nation.

Br. J. Sports Med, 2009) 17 year follow-up of men in Finland (2560 men) Cancer risk was inversely related to physical Cancer activity and intensity. The risk of cancer death was 50% lower among men who exercised at least 30 minutes per day on average. Results were strongest for cancer of GI tract and lung lung Summary Statement: Summary Colon Cancer “The research strongly suggest that The occupational and leisure-time or total physical activity has a protective effect against the risk of developing colon cancer.” Surgeon General’s Report, 1996 Surgeon Meta-analysis Study (20 years of studies) the most active people are 24 percent less the 24 likely to develop colon cancer than sedentary people are, regardless of their diets, smoking habits or body weight. diets, (Wolin, et al.

Risk is lowered whether or not the activity affects the person's weight. person's National Physical Activity Guidelines Guidelines Individuals engaging in aerobic physical activity Individuals for approximately 3 to 4 hours per week at moderate or greater levels of intensity have on average a 30% reduction in colon cancer risk and a 20% to 40% lower risk of breast cancer, compared with those who are sedentary. A dose-response relation also is apparent, with risk decreasing at higher levels of physical activity.
