Two-thirds of bowel cancer patients aren’t advised to exercise despite health benefits

29 abril 2015

More than two-thirds (69 per cent) of bowel cancer patients say they weren’t advised to exercise regularly after their diagnosis – despite evidence that brisk physical activity is linked to better survival in bowel cancer, according to a study. The research is the largest study of its kind: more than 15,000 bowel cancer patients were asked about their current level of physical activity and whether they were advised to be more active after their diagnosis.
