BACKGROUND Physical activity is associated with a reduced risk of colon cancer, but the effect of activity on colorectal adenomas, which are precursors to colon cancer, is uncertain. The influence of physical activity on colorectal adenomas among African-American women is of particular interest because African-American women have an increased risk of colon cancer relative to other U.S. women. METHODS We prospectively assessed the relation of physical activity to the incidence of colorectal… CONTINUE READING
