Benefits of Exercise For Cancer Patients

Is exercise beneficial for cancer patients?

Researchers looked at the effects of 30 minutes of high-intensity exercise on 9 men with advanced prostate cancer.  

The study revealed blood levels of anticancer proteins were significantly elevated for up to 30 minutes after exercise, which was associated with a 17% decrease in tumor cell growth.

Although more research is needed, this study supports the benefits of exercise for cancer patients.
