CancerPrevention - science and research.

Cancer Research UK reports that exercise could prevent 3,400 cases of cancer each year and that exercise is helpful for people with cancer.

The Clinical Oncology Society of Australia recommends that exercise is embedded as part of standard practice in cancer care.

Physical activity helps to enhance wellbeing; it can increase self-esteem, reduce stress and anxiety, and play a role in preventing mental health problems and improve the quality of life of those experiencing it.

Department of Health guidelines recommend all adults take at least 150 minutes of moderate activity each week.

And finally... research into Cancer Survivors' experiences of a tailored exercise programme - CU Fitter.
