“I feel healthier today then I felt before I was diagnosed. I no longer have that false feeling of helplessness.

“Just completed the Anticancer Lifestyle program. Strongly encourage survivors, those looking to prevent cancer, those with risk factors, and really all of us to take this course. Most of us are unaware of how many risks exist, particularly from environmental factors. My favorite was the environment section. People get some nutrition, stress management, and exercise guidance but virtually no information about toxins and their impact.”

I really loved this course…it has changed my life and makes me feel like I have some control over a non-controllable situation! THANKS SO MUCH!!”

Physical activity leads to longer overall and progression-free survival in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer

A study done by researchers Guercio et al of over 1200 patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, found that among patients with mCRC, association of increased physical activity was associated with longer overall and progression-free survival.

Patients who engaged in at least 5 hours of nonvigorous physical activity per week had a 25% reduction in the hazard for death from any cause. Similarly, walking 4 or more hours per week was associated with a 20% improvement in the hazard for death from any cause, according to ­Brendan J. ­Guercio, MD, of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
