That doesn't seem very useful, as a layman.

EDIT: we're not talking about the benefits of exercise in general. That's well established and I am in no way questioning that. We're talking about myokines and cancer suppression.

It might have preventative effects on getting cancer in the first place.

So I'm totally talking out of my ass here but there's a variety of things that its important to have happen regularly in your body but not constantly. So even these short doses may have a high net benefit

Being active for half your life protects you from cancer for the rest of it, by that logic. Fitting that to a normal schedule, it makes sense. And points to sedentary life as a cancer permissive style.

How elevated were levels?

Exercising once probably doesn’t help a ton, but if you exercise twice a day or more for decades, it seems like it could be a massive benefit.

And the elevated levels might be prolonged in those who exercise regularly, just like a lot of things are improved only slightly by one bout of exercise but vastly improved by years of regular exercise

But think of all the exercise pills I can sell. That's useful to my wallet.
