pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) has been fully included in the trategy for treatment of lung cancer [1]. Evidences from ranomised controlled trials (RCTs) are scarce and limited to the ost-surgical setting [2] but a systematic review on the topic as recently concluded that “(rehabilitative) interventions preperatively or post-cancer treatment are associated(More)
Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages and a major dietary exposure in the world.
