Cancer-Reducing Lifestyle Factors Probed

JAMA. 2006;296(23):2790. doi:10.1001/jama.296.23.2790

A variety of lifestyle factors have been associated with a reduced risk of developing cancer, but scientists know little about how these protective benefits are modulated by an individual's sex, ethnicity, or other lifestyle factors. Now, results from studies on the potential cancer-protecting benefits of exercise and aspirin use, presented at American Association for Cancer Research's Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research meeting last month are helping to close those gaps in knowledge.
