Reducing cancer risk can start by reducing excess weight and increasing exercise. Here’s how you can easily begin a workout plan.

Physical activity will help you control your weight and keep hormone levels normal. Exercise helps by quickly moving cancer-causing toxins out of your body. The CDC recommends moderate-intensity physical activity for at least 30 minutes, five or more days per week. This can include walking during your lunch break, riding a stationary bike, or doing yoga. If you want more intense physical activity, it’s recommended that you do that for at least 20 minutes, three or more days per week. This includes activities like jogging, jumping rope, or playing tennis.
