Strenuous exercise, or even just cleaning house for a couple of hours a day, can lower the risk of being afflicted with colon cancer.

According to a study according to the study conducted on more than 413,000 people at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in Lyon, France , 70 percent of cases could be prevented by changes in diet and exercise.

More than 940,000 cases are diagnosed each year and over 50 percent of patients die from the illness.
