post 1 had 147 posts.
post 2 had 112 that lots of exercise friends.

Now we have survival boost 3. Lets play poker with our cancer and take him to the cleaners.

See the first post here about the science of exercise.

This post started out as walking, but we are an open minded bunch and now we have many exercise types listed in the title. Just move if you can.

We also have the unique 100,000km 30 year clinical trial being run here. will anyone make this target, dare is say even earlier than 30 years. It would be just so amazing. Obviously we will all have to live that long to get an invite to the party.

In Sydney Australia, sylvania to sutherland. Bottle and all.
This is the walking post. I am walking to the naturopath right now.
I feel fine, with energy just bad diarrhea. Its good having a bag, I don't have to find a tree anymore. haha

If you have some energy and are well come for a walk with me today. A walk around the world if you will for 10 minutes to 5 hours whatever you can manage. going to do this everyday.

I used to hear " an apple a day keeps the doctor away "

Now I say to myself " a walk a day keeps the monster away"

search on exercise colorectal and recurrance, for details.

come on couch potatoes up and addem and move.

love to all,

Pete

ps I am out the door right now.

1. What is the relationship between physical activity and colon cancer risk?
Colorectal cancer has been one of the most extensively studied cancers in relation to physical activity, with more than 50 studies examining this association. Many studies in the United States and around the world have consistently found that adults who increase their physical activity, either in intensity, duration, or frequency, can reduce their risk of developing colon cancer by 30 to 40 percent relative to those who are sedentary regardless of body mass index (BMI), with the greatest risk reduction seen among those who are most active (3–7). The magnitude of the protective effect appears greatest with high-intensity activity, although the optimal levels and duration of exercise are still difficult to determine due to differences between studies, making comparisons difficult. It is estimated that 30 to 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per day is needed to protect against colon cancer (6, 7). It is not yet clear at this time whether physical activity has a protective effect for rectal cancer, adenomas, or polyp recurrence (3).
Physical activity most likely influences the development of colon cancer in multiple ways. Physical activity may protect against colon cancer and tumor development through its role in energy balance, hormone metabolism, insulin regulation, and by decreasing the time the colon is exposed to potential carcinogens. Physical activity has also been found to alter a number of inflammatory and immune factors, some of which may influence colon cancer risk.

    Pulling big weeds...I think I over-did it. Hoping I won't hurt too bad in the morning.

    dunno about walking
    I'm feeling rather stiff now and I've had a soak in a hot tub already...we'll just have to see when I try to get out of bed ;-)

    I've had a good harvest of mint, parsley, rhubarb, chard, bok choy, lettuce and spinach...raspberries, elderberries, onions and peas coming along well. I planted basil seedlings today and some cosmos yesterday. I'm trying to get the back half of the garden weeded so I can plant corn and bean seeds. Last year I never got to it because I was sick and this year that part of the garden is really over-run. As long as I only gaze upon the first half of the garden, it looks great!

    Be well,
    Janine

    A little shopping and lots of walking on State Street in Santa Barbara. It's an outdoor shopping street with every store you can imagine! And lots of yummy restaurants too :)

    Love, Gail

    My wife has joined me and
    My wife has joined me and the kids for our morning walk! (The kids are a Beagle mix and a Pekingenese mix.) She also joined me in the Zone diet. We now walk 3-4kms in the morning and another 2-3kms in the evening. We turned off the TV three months ago to be able to concentrate on walking and enjoying each other.

    Best Always, mike

    dear pepe, rest and get well.
    my golden rule from the extreme health nuts is if you are tired do n't exercise. let your body heal, recover and then walk.
    i waited now almost a full month from operation to even a 3km walk.
    today i did a 10km walk at the gym over 90 minutes with lots of lovelly ladies.
    maybe review diet and give body a boost.

    come on everyone, lets exercise.

    Treadmill
    I invested in a treadmill, because I have NO bag .... so I need...bushes, trees, Portopotty, just in case I wear a diaper. LOL.
    Treadmill is great, pu I-Pod on it or my spoken book and "voila" I walk at my own pace. When the weather is good I try to go outside.
    When will this potty thing end? It is now 6 weeks after my operation?
