Exercise May Help Beat Cancer, Research - Health-Teachers

A new study suggests that exercise can increase the effectiveness of cancer treatment drugs and increase the patient's chances of survival. According to the International News Agency, scientists in the research found that the proteins released by the body to repair tired muscles also attack cancer cells.

Researchers at the New York Grossman School of Medicine found in a study that 30 minutes of exercise five days a week in mice suffering from cancer caused a 50 percent reduction in the formation of cancer cells. Another test found that mice that ran on a treadmill continuously for three weeks lost 25 percent of their tumor weight.

After proving their theory in mice, the scientists reviewed data from a 2017 trial of 75 patients with gallbladder cancer. The patient group was asked to do one hour of vigorous exercise and 90 minutes of aerobic exercise each week before undergoing surgery.

Those who participated in the six-week training were 50 percent more likely to survive than those who did not. Scientists are hopeful that this discovery could lead to better treatment for people suffering from cancer.

Scientists have been talking for a long time that one of the benefits of exercise is that people are less likely to get cancer, but this research shows that exercise can also help treat patients with this disease.
