Back in 2010, the American College of Sports Medicine put out new guidelines for cancer survivors when it comes to being active. The main gist: avoid inactivity and aim for the government guidelines of 150 minutes a week.

But the field of exercise and those undergoing cancer treatment is relatively new, and the experts said more research is needed. It’s important for the growing population of cancer survivors – now 15.5 million and growing quickly – and their loved ones.

Now comes a new study from researchers at Ohio State that shows exercise is indeed safe and provides improvement for breast and prostate cancer patients. The scientists presented their research at our conference. You can read more about it hereRead more… “New Research, Exercise is Safe, Helpful for Breast and Prostate Cancer Patients”

    There’s been a lot of research on anti-inflammatory diets over the years, much of it related to cancer and other chronic diseases. That’s because chronic inflammation is strongly associated with the development of many cancers, such as colorectal.

    Those links led to University of South Carolina researchers developing a dietary inflammatory index — a measure of how much foods and its components may increase or decrease inflammation. Here’s some of foods. Read more… “Anti-inflammatory diet may lower risk of mortality from heart disease among breast cancer survivors”

      The World Health Organization is urging countries to tax sugary sodas, and other sugary drinks in order to lower consumption, which can reduce the numbers of people suffering from diabetes as well as cancer and other non-communicable diseases, according to a report they released today.

      Regular consumption of sugary drinks leads to overweight and obesity, diabetes and tooth decay, the report highlights. With these their link to weight gain, sugary drinks also increase cancer risk. AICR research shows overweight and obesity increases risk of eleven cancers, including post-menopausal breast, colorectal and esophageal.

      Avoiding sugary drinks is one of AICR’s Recommendations for Cancer Prevention. Read more… “Tax sugary drinks to lower obesity (and cancer risk), says World Health Organization”
