Physical Activity in Cancer Prevention discusses the fact that increased physical activity is associated with reduced risk for several cancers, as well as the fact that evidence suggests that a sedentary lifestyle is associated with increased levels of biomarkers associated with increased cancer risk. The DVD reviews several mechanism studies that examined the biological effects of weight loss and exercise relevant to cancer. Collectively, these investigations found that a greater amount of exercise and weight loss were associated with a lower cancer risk and had a stronger effect on cancer biomarkers.

Among the topics covered:

• Epidemiology: physical activity
• Exercise effects on cancer biomarkers-randomized clinical trial evidence
• A.P.P.E.A.L. trial
• The N.E.W. study-nutrition and exercise in women
