A new study by Indian origin researcher Prasad Iyer, who is M.D. gastroenterologist at Mayo Clinic has shown that physical activity among other things can also help to reduce the risk of esophageal cancer. Esophageal cancer is the sixth most common cancer in men worldwide.
An analysis was done of four studies where researchers observed that lower risk of esophageal adenocarcinoma in people who were physically active. This analysis also showed that the overall risk of esophageal cancer was 19 per cent lower among those men who are physically active in comparison to those who are the least physically active.
Prasad Iyer said, “Obesity has been associated with increased risk of esophageal cancer through high levels of insulin, as well as chronic inflammation. By decreasing visceral fat, lowering levels of certain carcinogens, improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing chronic inflammation, physical activity can potentially decrease risk of esophageal cancer.”
The study was presented at the American College of Gastroenterology’s Annual Scientific Meeting, San Diego.
