Physically Active Adolescents May Reduce Brain Cancer Later in Life
Lack of physical activity in early life may be linked to Glioma, the most common and deadly brain cancer, according to a study by the American Association for Cancer Research.
The study of 500,000 participants found that those “who were physically active during adolescence had a decreased risk of glioma; their risk was about 36 percent lower than those who were inactive, according to the study. The researchers also found that those who were obese during adolescence had an increased risk of glioma; their risk was approximately three to four times that of individuals who were normal weight during adolescence.”
