Exercise helps cancer sufferers

New research has revealed that regular exercise can help reduce depression amongst cancer patients.

The study showed that women on an exercise program during treatment for breast cancer experienced lower levels of depression and increased quality of life compared with those who were less active.

The study found patients who did at least three hours activity a week were more positive and had a better quality of life.

Researchers at the Scottish Universities of Strathclyde and Dundee led the study which was published in the Journal of Cancer Survivorship.
