Cancer Prevention and Management Through Exercise and Weight Control
edited by Anne McTiernan

Cancer Prevention and Management Through Exercise and Weight Control brings together the contributions of world-class researchers to lay out the evidence and a plan of attack for coping with this crisis.


  • Explores the role of energy balance and activity in cancer incidence and prognosis
  • Examines the effect of physical activity on fatigue in cancer patients, as well as its effect on quality of life
  • Suggests biological mechanisms that might explain the association between exercises and cancer incidence
