Exercise can improve the health, energy and well-being of cancer patients after they’ve completed their main cancer treatment, a new review finds.

University of Hong Kong researchers analyzed the results of 34 clinical trials that examined the effects of physical activity among adult patients with breast, prostate, gynecologic, colorectal, gastric or lung cancer.

The study was published online Feb. 1 in BMJ. There were an average of 93 patients in each trial, which included aerobic, resistance and strength training. The patients’ average age was 55, and the training lasted roughly 13 weeks.     http://consumer.healthday.com/Article.asp?AID=661245
