“Exercise Cuts Cancer Recurrence Risk”
Combinations of a nutritious diet and regular exercise can be extremely important in maintaining health and in reducing overall risk of illness and in cutting the recurrence rate for various cancers. On August 5, 2011, the UK Macmillan Cancer Support group recommended, “All patients getting cancer treatment should be told to do two and a half hours of physical exercise every week. Being advised to rest and take it easy after treatment is an outdated view.” The Department of Health says research shows that exercise can reduce the risk of dying from cancer and minimize the side effects of treatment. Adult cancer patients and cancer survivors should undertake 150 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity per week, which is what the Department of Health guidelines recommend.
