The new "miracle drug" in the fight against cancer
Exercise is the new "miracle drug" as used in the fight against cancer, this solution while having the ability to reduce the risk of the disease returning, according to a recent study in the UK.
Patients suffering from breast cancer who are exercising for 150 minutes during a week have a 40% reduction in risk of death and risk of disease recurrence compared with patients who exercise less than an hour week, inform mirror.co.uk.
Patients suffering from intestinal cancer has a 50% reduction in risk of recurrence of disease if they sport six hours a week, and patients suffering from prostate cancer death risk by 30% lower if they exercise for three hours a week.
Macmillian Cancer Support Foundation, the charity which commissioned this study supports the recommendations issued by the Department of Health in Britain, which urges all survivors of the battle with cancer to 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week.
By worrying, however, only 40% of doctors and nurses in oncology services are aware of these recommendations and over 50% of them do not talk to patients about the benefits of practicing physical exercises.
The practice of physical exercise during treatment for cancer has positive effects on mood and, after their side effects and diminish anxiety, depression, fatigue, disorders of mobility and changes in weight.
Macmillian Cancer Support Foundation British representatives estimated that about 1.6 million people in the two million survivors who have beat cancer have not found that to make sport for 150 minutes per week to reduce the risk of recurrence of disease.
