FFF 048: Running For Your Life – How & Why Exercise Helps Fight Cancer – with Dr Ian Lahart


Cancer is something that will have directly or indirectly affected almost everyone who has listened to this podcast.

But despite its prevalence, lots of us know so little about it.

This week, cancer researcher and sport scientist – Dr Ian Lahart – is on the show to talk about exercise and cancer and why exercise can reduce your cancer risk.

He’ll explain how different lifestyle factors can contribute to cancer, the types of cancer that respond best to exercise interventions, why exercise can reduce instances of certain cancers but not others, how exercise can benefit patients, why physical activity affects cancer survivorship and lots more.

Thanks for listening and the support – if you enjoyed this episode, I hope you can leave the podcast a rating and review on iTunes, and if you haven’t subscribed yet, this is the best time to do that too. This will help the show to get up in the rankings.
