A Study Showed that Fit Middle Aged Men Were Found to Have Lower Risk of Colon and Lung Cancer! 

In the news, March 26th… a study published on-line by the peer-reviewed Journal of the American Medical Association/JAMA Oncology showed a link between cardiovascular health and a decreased incidence of  colon and cancer.
