How targeted exercise can help fight cancer. By the time you hit midlife, odds are you or someone close to you will be touched by cancer. Cancer remains a potentially lethal lottery and everyone's experience is different. But appropriate exercise under professional supervision - before, during, or after treatment - seems to substantially improve your odds.
They Call It The Most Effective Anti-Cancer 'Trick' Many People Ignore and It's as Simple as a Mild Cardio Workout
According to a Documentary Entitled "Exercise and Cancer" produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Catalyst television program, many Oncologist are beginning to prescribe targeted exercises for cancer patients.
Professor Robert Newton, Exercise Medicine Research Institute co-director, suggests the idea for the use of exercise with cancer treatment stemmed from observations by oncologists that patients in their care often became too ill and weak to fight the disease.
In the interest of boosting energy, minimizing side effects and preventing further physical decline, Newton's guiding question became something to the effect of: "If we prescribed a tailored exercise program our patients could complete during their cancer treatment, would it make a difference?"
“We now have a growing number of research studies showing that if people hit a certain level of physical activity, which is relatively modest … they'll more than double their chances of surviving cancer.”
