Cancer and Exercise

ATLANTA (AP) - The American Cancer Society is recommending that
cancer survivors exercise more and improve their diets to help
prevent the disease from coming back.
The cancer society on Thursday released new guidelines, saying
there's now enough evidence to strongly recommend physical activity
and better nutrition for survivors. The message: For many cancers,
maintaining a healthy weight, exercising and eating a healthy diet
can reduce the risk that cancer will return.
At least two other organizations have issued similar advice, but
the cancer society's endorsement is expected to have greater
impact. It's the nation's richest charity in both donations and
volunteers, and is the largest non-governmental funder of cancer
research.
The guidelines were published online Thursday.
