New research shows exercise reduces risk of death in breast cancer patients – Medical News Tod

Women with breast cancer who engage in physical activity, even if at moderate level, have a lower risk of death, cancer-specific or not; according to new research presented yesterday at the 2014 World Cancer Congress in Melbourne, Australia.

There exists a growing interest in non-pharmacological treatments for cancer and other non-communicable diseases. Exercise has been broadly known as an effective and safe therapy for breast cancer patients in reducing fatigue, depression and improving overall quality of life, but this new metaanalysis of 15 clinical studies, involving 1,447 women with breast cancer (average age of 51), found exercise also had a positive effect on tumour growth.
