Being physically active above your usual routine, no matter what your level of activity, can have many health benefits. One of them is lowering your cancer risk. The American Cancer Society recommends that adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity each week (or a combination of these). While setting aside time for exercise is important, you can also find ways to be active in your everyday life that take little or no extra time.
Our team is made up of doctors and oncology certified nurses with deep knowledge of cancer care as well as journalists, editors, and translators with extensive experience in medical writing.
