Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, in the September 2014 issue of The Blaylock Wellness Report, had an interesting article regarding exercise and cancer:
Exercise and a reduction in abdominal fat greatly reduce a person’s risk of developing cancer. Exercise increases the efficiency of the antioxidant network, improves oxygenation of tissues (cancer cannot survive in a high-oxygen environment), and improves overall health. When combined with a good [vegan] diet and selected nutrient supplements, exercise can play a major role in cancer prevention.
However, extreme, intensive exercise – especially when not taking high levels of antioxidants and flavonoids – may actually increase cancer risk, as extreme exercise generates very high levels of free radicals throughout the body that last hours after the exercise period.
