Cancer is one of the most devastating things that can happen to a person. Regardless of what type of cancer or how significant the case is cancer is an absolutely awful problem. Fortunately there are millions of dollars being spent to try and understand cancer to hopefully lead to better treatment or a possible cure. Today one of the leading research programs connected physical activity to various health benefits for cancer patients which is great news.
The study essentially linked physically active patients with higher recovery and survival rates as well as overall happiness. Both of these are absolutely great for anyone dealing with cancer so any sort of significant connection to feeling better or healing faster is absolutely great news. The research shows that there is also a connection between workout and activity types and how significant of a health benefit there is. Overall researchers say that as long as cancer patients are able to remain physical active for as long as possible they are able to increase their odds or surviving and recovering by a significant amount. Because of this finding there are dozens of follow up studies being conducted which may lead to more conclusive evidence; for now though doctors are just happy to know that there is at least something they can recommend that might have some sort of impact. Anything that leads to less pain and better or quicker recovery in cancer patients is amazing news for everyone.
