The Italian Society against Leukemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma presents the "Fighting Leukemia" conference … Also with Lo Sport ", the first meeting organized by the SEC that is dedicated to & # 39; The relationship between sporting activity and blood cancers to introduce the positive effects of sport in onco-hematological patients; facilitate the overcoming of cultural and practical barriers to facilitate access to adult and children's sports affected by blood cancers and improving their quality of life.
Exercise is a powerful drug with anti-tumor action. Epidemiological studies have already shown that physical activity, which is constantly being practiced, is a preventative factor of some blood cancers; some research indicates that the most effective impact on the quality of life for patients with heat-hearted, elderly adults and pediatric age involves participating in exercise-related programs. Yet, a study, carried out on thousands of patients, has shown that exercise practice extends survival, reducing the sequence and re-occurrence of the disease.
Despite the scientific evidence, however, only a small percentage of patients who have had cancer of the blood, after diagnosing the diseases that play sports with the continuity and the density necessary to obtain the multiple benefits. Still important physical and practical barriers that do not exercise exercise are accessible to patients, and should now be considered a type of medication – the Practice Practice – for oncological and onco-heatatological patients. The numerous clinical and research studies conducted mainly in North America and North Europe indicate that Oncology Exercise is considered a new sub-discipline of oncological chemistry. The congress will take place on Sunday 11 November 2018, at Salus Hall, Hall 9, Fiera di Roma, between 10.00 and 13.30.
