Swim Training Plus Healthy Diet Factor In Cancer Fight: New Study

A new study published in the journal Applied Physiology, , and Metabolism (APNM) reaffirms the crucial role exercise along with good play in maintaining health and fighting disease.

(HCC) is the fifth most frequent cancer worldwide, ranking third among all cancer-related deaths. Clinical and experimental studies have shown that physical exercise helps to prevent cancer and improving quality of life,” says Dr. , a coauthor of this study and a researcher in the Department of Morphology at the Institute of Biosciences of São Paulo State University in Brazil. “This study is the first to demonstrate that there is a beneficial effect of against progression of in rats fed a low-fat diet, but not in rats fed a high-fat diet. That high-fat diet regimen mimics the food habits of humans living in Western countries.”

Dr. Terry Graham, editor of APNM, says, “The authors’ findings are an important illustration of how both nutrition and activity levels impact on health issues. We often think that these lifestyle factors only influence good health but this work demonstrates that the quality of nutrition and the degree of activity both influence ill health in terms of the progression of . This investigation highlights that we can dramatically alter our health status via exercise and nutrition.”
