Dr Johannes Brug explains that cancer survivors who exercise regularly live longer.

 

There is a growing body of evidence which suggests that regular exercise is beneficial in terms of cancer prevention, rehabilitation after cancer and in terms of patient survival. Dr Brug discusses this and explains the need for randomised trials to evaluate this more thoroughly.
