“This study provides strong evidence for the recommendation patients with prostate cancer, and likely anybody with any cancer type, should perform exercise most days, if not every day, to maintain a chemical environment within their body which is suppressive of cancer cell proliferation.”

Guess I'll just do 20 minutes of squats every day. It's like sitting so it's my favorite exercise.
