Exercise can help beat cancer: Physical activity can boost the effect of drugs or chemo, study finds

According to a study, exercise can boost the effectiveness of cancer drugs and increase survival rates. Scientists have discovered that proteins released by the body to help repair muscles worn down by exercise also attack cancer cells. After proving their theory in mice, they analyzed data from a human trial of 75 patients with pancreatic …
