Walk a mile to beat cancer - call

Friday August 29th, 2014

Most of the UK's long-term cancer patients are inactive - even though keeping fit can help stave off the disease, campaigners warn today.

Barely 20% of those living with cancer comply with recommended levels of fitness, according to charity Macmillan Cancer Support.

Just walking a mile a day - a 20 minute walk - can make a big difference to people with two of the most common cancers, it says.

Women with breast cancer reduce the risk of dying by 40% by undertaking moderate exercise while men with prostate cancer cut it by 30%, according to the analysis.

It can also reduce the impact of debilitating side-effects of treatment, the charity says.

It warns that out of two million people living with cancer just 400,000 are active at recommended levels.

Sandra Sayce, 51, from Middlesex, joined a walking group in 2011 after years of treatment for melanoma.
