(NaturalNews) Prostate cancer is one of the leading killers among men over 60 years of age. This type of cancer can go for many years undetected, and without causing any serious problems. However, it can also get very aggressive and spread rapidly to other parts of the body. When this happens, it can be very difficult to treat. But there is some good news. It has been proved that taking a daily brisk walk lowers the risk of prostate cancer.

Risks of developing cancer increase with one's age

Age has been known to be one of the major contributing factors to the occurrence of prostate cancer among men. Scientifically, men who are over 60 years are more prone to this deadly disease than those below that age. The disease can be detected very easily when one is approaching 70 years of age. Additionally, other factors that research has shown to contribute to the developing of this type of cancer have been highlighted below.

Men who are obese are more prone to prorate cancerFamily history has also been known to play a key role. Genetics and gene mutations in the family have been identified to cause prorate cancer.Consumption of high fat dairy products and red meat. If one is to fight successfully, he needs to take more fruits and vegetables.Chronic prostatitis, STI, alcohol, and smoking have also been mentioned by many researches to be among the factors that make men more susceptible to prostate cancer.

A daily brisk walk

Research has shown that daily work, coupled with regulars exercise, can have an extensive impact on prostate cancer prognosis. Ideally, a man who engages is some kind of high level physical activity has one of lowest risks of developing prostate cancer when compared to those men who do not actually exercise. In other findings, men with prostate tumors that have more regular blood vessels have a better prognosis than men with prostate tumors that contain irregular blood vessels. Walking has also been mentioned to largely contribute to how regular the man vessels are. Research has shown that men who reported to have walked at a brisk pace had regular shaped blood vessels when compared to men who walked at a less brisk pace.

Conclusion

All in all, there is no effective way that one can use to prevent himself from this type of cancer. However, regular physical activity can be one of the best routes to take. Even men who have been treated with this cancer before are less likely to have a more aggressive prostate cancer if they exercise more frequently. If the scientific findings are anything to go by, then men need to start walking briskly, eat more vegetables, and exercising regularly to keep prostate cancer at bay.
