General Surgery Specialist Op. Dr. Salim Balin gave information about the subject. 150 minutes of moderate-paced walking a week can protect us from cancer and its spread! Cancer is the second leading cause of death after heart disease among all deaths.
According to new research published in the November 15, 2022 issue of Cancer Research, aerobic exercise can reduce the risk of metastatic cancer by 72 percent. The study is the first to investigate the effect of exercise on internal organs where metastases often develop, such as the lungs, liver, and lymph nodes.
The findings showed that high-intensity aerobic exercise, powered by sugar, could reduce the risk of metastatic cancer. If the overall message to the public so far was 'be active, be healthy', it has now revealed how aerobic activity can maximize the prevention of the most aggressive and metastatic forms of cancer.
This study involved both rats and humans – rats trained under a strict exercise regimen and healthy human volunteers were examined before and after the run.
Human data were also drawn from an epidemiological study that followed 20 people over 2.734 years – during which 243 new cases of cancer were recorded. The researchers found that there were 72 percent fewer people with metastatic cancer who reported exercising regularly compared to those who didn't do physical exercise.
Another study has data showing that exercise can reduce the risk of death from breast cancer by 46 to 50 percent and reduce the risk of recurrence by 31 to 50 percent.
Clinically, it is suggested that exercise may have an antitumor effect through the regulation of the metabolic profile by increasing the body's insulin sensitivity, thereby contributing to glucose homeostasis, lowering steroid hormone levels, strengthening the immune system and helping us resist cancer.
Cancer is not a disease, it is the result of many diseases. Each requires its own special care and special treatment strategy. But there's one easy thing to understand about cancer: It's much better if you don't get cancer in the first place.
Kiss. Dr. Salim Balin, “How do we do this? By avoiding risks. We can start by keeping everything that causes cancer away from our lives. The first of these is cigarettes. It is the primary cause of lung cancer and more than a dozen other cancers. And there are other causes: unhealthy diet, obesity, lack of exercise, excessive alcohol and sun exposure, among others. Know the risk factors and avoiding them can help prevent cancer.
