Aerobics deprives cancer cells of energy.. These are the latest studies

A recent study said that intense aerobic exercise increases the body's consumption of glucose, and researchers believe that this reduces the availability of energy needed for the growth of tumors.

According to the "Medical News Today" website, intensive aerobic activities reduce the growth of some types of tumors by up to 72%, such as lymphoma, lung, and liver, and provide good protection against breast, prostate, colon, and rectal cancers. "Simply exercising reprograms our organs to demand more nutrients, and exercisers' organs can easily outpace cancer cells," said Dr. Erika Reese-Bunia of the American Cancer Society.

The results of the study said that 24 to 30 minutes of vigorous or intense physical activity is sufficient to provide protection through a mechanism "in which glucose consumption increases from the internal organs, which means less energy is provided to the tumor."

The study was based on cell studies of animal models and analyzed data from more than 623,000 cancer patients in the United States.
