Research: Exercise slows tumour growth
In a study published in the 16 March 2015, issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, researchers led by Duke Cancer Institute scientists studied the impact of exercise in models of breast cancer in mice.
They found that exercise stimulated significant improvements in the number and function of blood vessels around the tumours, improving oxygen flow to the cancer site. When treated with chemotherapy, the tumours shrank markedly better than they did in sedentary animals.
