ATLANTA (AP) - The American Cancer Society is recommending that cancer survivors exercise more and improve their diets to help prevent the disease from coming back.
The cancer society on Thursday released new guidelines, saying there's now enough evidence to strongly recommend physical activity and better nutrition for survivors. The message: For many cancers, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising and eating a healthy diet can reduce the risk that cancer will return.
At least two other organizations have issued similar advice, but the cancer society's endorsement is expected to have greater impact. It's the nation's richest charity in both donations and volunteers, and is the largest non-governmental funder of cancer research.
