A Walk In The Park May Keep Your Prostate Cancer In the Dark

Brisk walking may help men diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer reduce their risk of progression of the disease, according to Harvard School of Public Health.  The study shows that survivors who walk at a pace of at least 3 miles per hour for three hours or more per week were 57% less likely to develop the biochemical markers of cancer recurrence, which is the PSA test, or to need a second round of treatment for their disease.

The walking had to be brisk for men to experience a benefit.  The study suggests a way for men who have prostate cancer to do something to improve their prognosis and stay well.

Bottom Line:  If you have prostate cancer and want to reduce your risk of recurrence, then get off of the couch and get on to the walking path and start walking briskly
