New guidelines from the American Cancer Society increase recommended physical activity levels and endorse a healthy eating pattern of primarily plant-based, nutrient-dense whole foods. The new activity guidelines recommend at least 150–300 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75–150 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week. Achieving or exceeding the upper limit of 300 minutes is considered optimal. These adjustments reflect the most current evidence for cancer prevention.
