Updated: Tuesday, November 18 2014, 09:03 AM EST
CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) -- A new report said two simple steps might lower the odds that cancer will come back.

With more people living longer after cancer treatment researchers have started to explore what can make a difference when it comes to reducing the odds it will come back.  The study from Cornell University found two things can make a difference especially when it came to colon cancer,

The study found that those who exercise on a regular basis after treatment have lower colon cancer recurrence.  As little as an hour a week of exercise can make a difference.  They also found fatty fish with omega three fats could help.  Those who got at least two servings a week were able to reduce recurrence as well.  The fish was the kind high in fish fat such as salmon, mackerel and tuna.

It was simply exercise and seafood that made a difference in reducing return.
