Date:12/11/2012

f colon, breast and possibly other cancers, but relatively little is understood about how specific patterns or variability in physical activity, or its interaction with sleep quality and duration relate to cancer risk. Most relevant databases are too small or are based on subjective questionnaires limited to a few days or weeks of data, noted Dr. James McClain, Program Director for the Risk Factor Monitoring and Methods Branch at NCI.
