Epidemiological studies have consistently demonstrated that either occupational or recreational physical activity is protective against colon cancer.
However, it is unclear whether recreational activity is similarly protective among those who engage in high or low occupational activity.
We therefore compared 440 male cases of colorectal cancer with 1164 male hospital patients.
Occupational activity was defined according to job title, while recreational activity was assessed by questionnaire for three different periods of life.
