Exercising to help beat cancer

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:23 pm on 24 October 2017

We know that exercise makes us feel good and look good too but new research has found it can actually help cancer patients survive. 

The review, which covered more than 100 studies involving tens of thousands of people living with cancer, discovered that mortality dropped for those who exercised regularly and even lessened the side effects of chemotherapy.

The lead author of the report, Associate Professor Prue Cormie, is here in New Zealand sharing the work and discussing how exercise can be part of the cancer defence.
