How does exercise impact health for those with cancer? New research suggests that exercise boosts levels of a cancer fighting protein. 

Study Summary

This new research, which included 9 men with late-stage prostate cancer, found that: 

  • Participation in a 34 minute cycling workout increased levels of myokines, a protein which stimulates anti-cancer reactions in the body and suppresses tumor growth. 

The Hearty Take

Never underestimate the importance of exercise for both healing and prevention! The body undergoes a multitude of changes with exercise - and even one workout - has an impact. Aim to exercise daily to support your immediate health and future health.
