Exercise regularly.

You can reduce your risk for some types of cancers by increasing your physical activity. The American Institute for Cancer Research recommends being physically active every day for at least 30 minutes.

A new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that leisure-time physical activity was associated with a decreased risk of 13 specific types of cancer including colon cancer, breast cancer, endometrial cancer, esophageal cancer, liver cancer, stomach cancer, kidney cancer, and myeloid leukemia. In addition, physical activity was strongly associated with a decreased risk of multiple myeloma, a blood cancer, as well as cancers of the head and neck, rectum, bladder, and lung (in current and former smokers).
