In a study of 17,049 men, those with good respiratory and cardiovascular fitness were more likely to survive prostate, lung or colorectal cancer, and avoid developing lung or colorectal cancers.

Why working out is the cherry on the healthy living sundae
The Huffington Post
Welcome to the honest blog of a personal trainer with a decade of experience, a degree in kinesiology, and a dream to see the nation get fit. Working out can sometimes be, well, not fun. Long days at work, kids going crazy, family emergencies. It all adds up to a mentally drained and exhausted you. Now, you should go to the gym. The typical answer at this point: "I know I should, but there just isn't time." What if, you were told by an honest trainer, the gym was the fourth most important thing to take care of in your healthy living? In fact, getting into a gym is the icing on the cake or the cherry on top of a sundae.

1st foodies expanded diet 3.5 million years ago
Discovery News
Our ancestors used to dine almost exclusively on leaves and fruits from trees, shrubs and herbs until 3.5 million years ago when a major shift occurred, according to four new simultaneously published studies. During this shift, early human species like Australopithecus afarensis and Kenyanthropus platyops began to also feast on grasses, sedges and succulent plants — or on animals that ate those plants — the studies, published in the latest Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, conclude.

New weapon in fight against cervical cancer
ScienceDaily
Scientists at the University of Leeds have found a way to target and destroy a key protein associated with the development of cervical and other cancers. The E7 protein is produced early in the lifecycle of the human papillomavirus and blocks the body's natural defences against the uncontrolled division of cells that can lead to cancer. Researchers at the University of Leeds' School of Molecular and Cellular Biology have synthesized a molecule, called an RNA aptamer, that latches onto the carcinogenic protein and targets it for destruction, significantly reducing its presence in cells in the laboratory derived from cervical cancers.
