And Now for some news ….
Amount and Intensity of Leisure-Time Physical Activity and Lower Cancer Risk
A recent study was published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology to determine whether recommended amounts of leisure-time physical activity are associated with lower cancer risk, describe the shape of the dose-response relationship, and explore associations with moderate- and vigorous-intensity physical activity.
In the United States, 1.7 million individuals are diagnosed with invasive cancer and > 600,000 people die as a result of malignant diseases annually,1 which highlights the importance of cancer prevention.
It has been long known that physical activity is associated with a lower risk of colon and breast cancer, but the 2018 US Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Committee found strong evidence that physical activity is associated with a lower risk of several additional cancer sites, including endometrial, bladder, esophageal adenocarcinoma, kidney, and gastric.
Given this evidence, physical activity will play an increasingly important role in population-based cancer prevention efforts.
The study concluded that health care providers, fitness professionals, and public health practitioners should encourage adults to adopt and maintain physical activity at recommended levels to lower risks of multiple cancers.

Exercise and Depression
Exercise and advice can reduce pain and disability in patients with subacute low back pain. However, the mechanisms by which this combined intervention works are unclear.
The objective of a recent study published in the journal Musculoskeletal Science and Practice, was to estimate how much of the effect of a physiotherapist-directed exercise and advice intervention on pain and disability is mediated via changes in depressive symptoms.
The study concluded that depressive symptoms did not mediate the effect of exercise and/or advice in this sample. However, depressive symptoms were associated with pain and disability.
