Research: Impact of Nutrition and Exercise on Cancer Survival

In November-December 2008 Cancer Journal article, Impact of Nutrition and Exercise on Cancer Survival, researchers from the Yale School of Public Health wrote: “One of the most common questions cancer survivors ask is: “What can I do to improve my survival?” Physical activity and diet are modifiable behaviors with a multitude of health benefits. A growing number of publications show a strong relationship between physical activity and breast and colon cancer survival. Likewise, although not proven, it is certainly prudent to advise cancer survivors to adopt a diet associated with generalized cancer risk reduction. Numerous observational studies also have demonstrated that obesity and weight gain adversely affect cancer prognosis, adding further evidence to the hypothesis that physical activity and diet, two of the critical components of obesity and weight gain, influence cancer prognosis.”
