Active Survivor Research

By Posted on

This Sunday, millions of cancer survivors will celebrate the 23rd National Cancer Survivors Day, a day of events held in hundreds of communities around the world.

To mark the occasion, today’s issue of AICR’s Cancer Research Update recaps ongoing research examining how physical activity may help survivors feel better. You can read the article here.

Research exploring how diet, weight, and physical activity influence recurrence and secondary cancer is a booming field. Right now, AICR recommends that – after treatment – cancer survivors follow AICR’s cancer prevention recommendations for diet, physical activity and healthy weight maintenance (unless otherwise advised by a health professional).

You can find more information on issues before, during, and after cancer diagnosis by visiting AICR’s Cancer Patients and Survivors.
