Exercise can considerably reduce your risk of developing several cancers and significantly aid patients in their battle with the disease.
Even moderate physical activity can greatly can cut the risk of developing certain cancers and benefit a patient undergoing cancer treatment.
Cancer is the cause of one in four deaths in Ireland. Scientific evidence is increasingly pointing to the benefits of physical activity in beating the disease and potentially saving lives.
There is also clear evidence to tell us that physical activity and exercise can reduce your risk of developing breast, bowel and womb cancer. It may also help prevent lung cancer.
