Exercise can directly stop the spread of cancer
LONDON: Although there has been a lot of research on the effects of exercise on cancer, there is now chemical research on the effects of exercise on cancerous tumors on the muscles of the whole body and bones.
Exercise has been shown to increase the excretion of proteins such as myocaine, which can cause the cancerous growths in the body to shrink or slow down. It was also found that people who are undergoing treatment for cancer, if they dare to exercise, it also speeds up their treatment. But scientists still need to know the full reason.
Specialists selected 10 prostate cancer patients and gave them exercise for 12 weeks, as well as androgen degradation therapy. This included aerobics and muscle strengthening exercises. Patients were given protein supplements and limited calorie foods. The purpose was to determine the level of mucosae in the blood. It is a muscle-building hormone that is released from the body during exercise.
Scientists believe that the release of myocaine can prevent cancer. It does not allow tumors to spread at the molecular level. Three months of exercise increases the amount of myocaine in the body, which is confirmed by blood tests. As blood levels increased, so did the size of prostate cancer tumors. Thus regular exercise can prevent cancer or stop the growth of cancer.
But experts say that these myokines do not kill cancer cells in any way, nor do they give such signals, but they do command the body’s immune cells, known as T cells, to become active and kill the cancer cells.
Although this little research has been done on one type of cancer, experts believe that exercise may benefit all types of cancer.
