However, we are going to focus on 3 types of cancer and how to prevent them through exercise and other means.

LUNG AND LIVER CANCER

Honestly nobody wants to develop cancer. Though, we can't point at certain ways we can get cancer, but we can do some certain things to prevent us from developing cancer. One of them is to quit smoking or don't  smoke at all. This reduces the chances of developing either lung or liver cancer. Also, leading a moderate lifestyle which includes eating clean and taking care of your weight through exercise can reduce your chances of developing this type of cancer at least by 50% .

Also, according to Robert Steigerwald, a licensed clinical exercise physiologist and certified cancer exercise trainer in Huntington, New York, "postmenopausal breast cancer is very likely for overweight and obese women."

  8. You may even know that exercise is important when it comes to cancer: It may lower cancer risk by helping control weight, reduce sex hormones or insulin, and strengthen the immune system; and it can boost quality of life during cancer treatment.
