Walking Away from Prostate Disease

Regular exercise may help prevent BPH

(HealthDayNews) -- Physical activity is known to be good for your heart, lungs and circulation. But here's an added plus for men only.

Regular exercise reduces the risk of benign prostatic hyperplasia, enlargement of the prostate gland (BPH).

According to Archives of Internal Medicine a study of the health records of almost 2,000 men showed a clear relationship between exercise and a healthy prostate. Men who walked just two-to-three hours each week cut their risk of BPH by 25 percent.
