Cycling Cuts Cancer Risk

Several previous studies have reported associations between cycling and lower
heart disease risk. New research confirms this and also suggests cycling may also
lower the risk of cancer. The study tracked data on 264,000 people regarding their
commute to work, following them for five years. Researchers found that those who
cycled to work had a 45% lower risk of cancer and a 46% reduced risk of heart
disease compared to those with a “non-active commute.” Walking to work was also
linked to lower risk of heart disease but not cancer. Walkers typically commuted 6
miles per week, whereas cyclers averaged 30 miles.
