Heard about this thing called the Paleo Diet? Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably have. Did you know though that beyond getting your bikini body back for the summer months, the Paleo Diet when combined with exercise can also promote a longer, healthier life and decrease your risk of developing cancer.
Strength is an essential attribute for healthy living. Lean muscle mass is a very active metabolic and immune tissue that promotes health and vitality, as well as protecting against chronic degenerative conditions like cancer. It’s well established in the medical literature that exercise helps to reduce the incidence of cancers and the mortality rates associated with cancers.1 That’s right, increasing your activity levels or simply ‘moving more’ is a powerful way to protect yourself against cancer. In fact, if you’re stuck at your desk all day, the research shows a dose-response association between how much you sit during the day and mortality from all causes and states that doctors should actively ‘discourage sitting for extended periods of time’.2 In fact, a review study of almost one million people showed simply adding more non-vigorous exercise (i.e. more walking) into your daily regime can lower your risk of death from chronic disease by 19%.3
