Can Exercise Reduce The Risk Of Cancer?

Does exercise reduce cancer growth? “Our research shows that exercise affects the production of several molecules and metabolites that activate cancer-fighting immune cells and thereby inhibit cancer growth,” says Helene Rundqvist, senior researcher at the Department of Laboratory Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, and the study’s first author.

What is the best exercise to prevent cancer? A research team at the University of Sydney assembled a research team to find out which form of exercise is the most effective at preventing cancer. After studying 80,000 adults, the team concluded that strength training is more effective at prolonging life than cardio workouts.
