LATEST NEWS IN THE FIELD OF CANCER RESEARCH Application Of Exercises Dmitry/Tommi/Ilya SPO10S
Study by Cramp F & Byron-Daniel J. Exercise for the management of cancer-related fatigue in adults. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2012, Issue 11. Art. No.: CD The new review builds on a 2008 systematic review on the benefits of exercise, published in the Cochrane Library The updated review added an additional 28 studies to the 2008 original, creating a total of 56 studies - half of which looked at people with breast cancer - involving a total of 4,068 patients.
REVIEW CONFIRMS EXERCISE CAN HELP REDUCE CANCER-RELATED FATIGUE Outcome: Striking a balance between activity and rest can help people manage cancer- related fatigue. It's particularly encouraging that moderate aerobic exercise - like walking or cycling - seems to be most effective Exercise may help reduce cancer-related fatigue and should therefore be considered as one component of a strategy for managing fatigue that may include a range of other interventions and education People with cancer don't need to invest in gym membership or costly equipment to get the benefit of exercise. Anyone affected by cancer should seek advice from their doctor before embarking on an exercise programme, just in case there is something about their condition that might make some forms of exercise risky for them Further studies will look at how the frequency and duration of exercise, and type of cancer, affect the results.
Research by University of Hong Kong Results were published on Outcome: Differences in the type and intensity of exercise also had an impact on the physical health of patients Breast cancer patients found that aerobic exercise plus resistance was significantly more effective on physical fitness, emotional fitness, overall well being and concerns about breast cancer, compared with aerobic activity on its own
Study from Denmark Results were published on Outcome: Use of cholesterol-lowering statins before and after a cancer diagnosis could reduce mortality. Statins not only limit the growth of cancer cells but also make them more vulnerable to certain therapies. *Statins are a class of drugs used to lower cholesterol levels. Increased cholesterol levels have been associated with cardiovascular diseases, and statins are used in the prevention of these diseases. *Some types of statins are naturally occurring, and can be found in such foods as oyster mushrooms and red yeast rice.
By Jennifer LaRue Huget Results were published on in the Journal of the American Medical Association Outcome: Daily multivitamin intake might reduce older men’s cancer risk — but not their ultimate risk of dying from cancer.
A study by researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University The study was published in the online edition of the American Journal of Epidemiology Outcome: Researchers suggest that body mass index (BMI)—the most commonly used weight-for-height formula for estimating fatness—may not be the best measure for estimating disease risk, and particularly the risk of certain types of cancer => if you have healthy BMI, it does not mean that you can not have cancer
VI.VITAMIN K AS A CANCER FIGHTER Source: “Vitamin K May Protect Against Developing Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Say Mayo Clinic Researchers” Science Daily, 4/21/10, sciencedaily.com Outcome: New evidence shows vitamin K may be a potential cancer fighter Dark leafy green vegetables, cauliflower, broccoli, olive oil, and avocados are all rich in vitamin K1, which is converted into K2 in the intestine. Dietary K2 is mostly found in liver and egg yolk, and fermented products such as yogurt and cheese
