MEN with prostate cancer who exercise regularly could cut their risk of dying from the disease by more than half, researchers say. A study of sufferers found physical activity was linked to a lower risk of dying prematurely from any cause, and in particular from the disease. Researchers also found that men who did more vigorous activity had the lowest chance of dying from the disease - cutting the risk by 60 per cent. Researcher Stacey Kenfield said: 'This is good news for men living with prostate cancer who wonder what lifestyle practices to follow to improve cancer survival. Each year, nearly 35,000 British men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 10,000 die from it. The 18-year study by the Harvard School of Public Health and the University of California looked at 2,705 men diagnosed with the disease, with participants reporting how long they spent doing physical activity such as walking, running and swimming each week.DM
