Research has shown that exercise can prevent certain types of cancer. However, recent studies have also suggested that exercise may play a role in curing cancer. At the University of Turku, researcher Tiia Koivula is studying the impact of exercise on immune cells in cancer patients.
Koivula’s research has focused on understanding how exercise can help prevent cancer. While there are still many uncertainties about the exact mechanisms at work, it is believed that multiple factors may be at play. This research raises the possibility that exercise could not only help prevent cancer but also aid in its treatment and cure.
