The best way to beat cancer is to stop it in the first place.
So, that’s what a study from the University of Michigan suggests.
It found that the more you play a sport, the more likely you are to live longer, to beat brain cancer and, in turn, to recover.
“There’s really a lot of work that needs to be done to understand how this plays out over time,” said Dr. Steven D. Anderson, lead author of the study and a researcher at the University’s Institute for Health and the Brain.
“It’s not going to happen overnight.
It’s going to take a lot more research, a lot less money, a little bit more effort and, ultimately, a better system to make the decisions we need to make.”
The study examined the lives of more than 6,000 men who played sports for at least five years between 2007 and 2012.
It tracked their brain cancer survival rates for three decades and the number of men who passed away from the disease.
The men were followed up for as long as possible, including for at-risk years, so the study was able to analyze their brain tumor survival and overall health.
The researchers found that men who spent more time playing sports had a 70 percent lower risk of dying from brain cancer compared to men who did not.
The study found that there was no significant difference in the odds of dying if a person had played at least 15 years in a sport compared to if they had not.
But the researchers found some other things.
“In addition to the benefits of playing sports, there’s the positive health impacts,” said Anderson.
“One of them is the reduction in the risk of dementia.”
The study looked at the health of those who played and played a sport for at most 30 years, and did not include people who had never played sports, and so it doesn’t say how long people played, or how many hours they played.
Still, the researchers noted that the study is the first to show that physical activity can be an important factor in protecting against cancer.
“It’s clear that physical exercise has a positive impact on health and mortality, and that we should be aware of that,” said study co-author Dr. Mark R. Raskin, a professor of clinical epidemiology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
“But we also know that physical health, healthful diet, lifestyle changes, and better physical education, which is important for the brain and the overall health of the body, are important factors.”
The researchers also noted that there are no definitive biomarkers for brain cancer, but the results suggest that physical activities like playing sports can protect against cancer and that playing a sport could have an even greater effect on a person’s overall health than playing for a few years.
The study was published in the journal Cell Metabolism.
