According to new research published in the Nov. 15, 2022 issue of Cancer Research, aerobic exercise can reduce the risk of metastatic cancer by 72 percent. The study is the first to examine the effect of exercise on internal organs where metastases often develop, such as the lungs, liver and lymph nodes.
The findings showed that high-intensity aerobic exercise fueled by sugar could reduce the risk of metastatic cancer. If until now the general message to the public has been ‘be active, be healthy’, it has now revealed how aerobic activity can maximize the prevention of the most aggressive and metastatic cancers.
This study involved both rats and humans: rats trained to a strict training regimen and healthy human volunteers were examined before and after the run.
Human data was also drawn from an epidemiological study that followed 2,734 people for 20 years – recording 243 new cancer cases. The researchers found that there were 72 percent fewer people with metastatic cancer who reported exercising regularly compared to those who did not exercise.
Another study has data showing that exercise can reduce the risk of death from breast cancer by 46 to 50 percent and reduce the risk of recurrence by 31 to 50 percent.
It is clinically suggested that exercise may have an anti-tumor effect through the regulation of the metabolic profile by increasing the body’s insulin sensitivity, thereby contributing to glucose homeostasis, lowering steroid hormone levels, strengthening the immune system and helping us to resist cancer.
Cancer is not a disease, it is the result of many diseases. Each requires its own special care and special treatment strategy. But there’s one thing that’s easy to understand about cancer: It’s much better if you don’t get cancer in the first place.
Kiss. Dr. Salim Balin ,”,”How do we do this? By avoiding risks. We can start by keeping everything that causes cancer out of our lives. The first of these are cigarettes. It is the primary cause of lung cancer and more than a dozen other cancers. And there are other causes: unhealthy diet, obesity, lack of exercise, excessive alcohol consumption and sun exposure, among others. Knowing the risk factors and avoiding them can help prevent cancer.
