Reduce Your Risk

   Be Active

Increase Your Activity & Reduce Your Risk for Cancer.

Research indicates that physical activity reduces the risk of colon cancer by 50% and plays a role in lowering your risk of other cancers.
Which means you have the power to do something about it.
Small steps like parking farther from your destination and walking reduce your risk.
Now you know.  Now you can.

For further information on physical activity and cancer prevention, please go to the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans -or- to American Institute for Cancer Resarch.
