Exercise aids cancer recovery

The great 7th century Chinese doctor and teacher Sun Simiao said, "The Tao of nurturing life requires that one keep oneself as fluid as possible." This is borne out yet again byew exercise/cancer research which has found that exercising for several weeks after chemotherapy can remodel the immune system, making it more effective at preventing secondary cancers. At the same time it adds to the evidence that for healthy people regular exercise can reduce the risk of developing cancer in the first place. (Exercise could fortify immune system against future cancers. American Physiological Society).
