(Video) Eight Ways to Prevent Cancer - Exercise

Next up in the Eight Ways to Prevent Cancer video series: Exercise.

CNiC's Dr. Kate Wolin walks us through the huge benefits we get from exercise, including a lower risk of heart disease and diabetes, on top of the cancer benefits many people may not be aware of. The video also highlights the fantastic progress of a cancer survivor who went from walking just over a 1,000 steps per week, to over 6,000 steps per day - on her way to an ultimate goal of 10,000 per day.

Wolin's quote sums it up best:  "It's never too early to start being active, but it's certainly never too late."
