Study: Increased exercise does not reduce prostate cancer risk in black men

A study in the journal “Cancer” looked at the exercise habits of 307 men aged 62-71.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- A study in the journal “Cancer” looked at the exercise habits of 307 men aged 62-71.

When the men underwent prostate biopsies, doctors found that white men who were moderately active were less likely to have a positive prostate biopsy result.

Those who did have a positive biopsy were less likely to have a high-grade cancer than those who were sedentary.

However, increased exercise did not reduce the prostate cancer risk in black men.
