China's increasingly westernized lifestyle has been associated with an increase of colon cancer. A recent study has found that walking or cycling to work can reduce the risk of this cancer. High levels of physical activity (over 2 hours of cycling or half hour walk daily) for over 35 years were associated with as much as a 69% reduced risk of colon cancer. Other studies directly link colon cancer to level of activity and BMI.
