Physical Activity and Pancreatic Cancer Risk: A Systematic Review
This systematic review does not provide strong evidence for an association between physical activity and risk for pancreatic cancer. Expand
Physical activity and breast cancer risk: impact of timing, type and dose of activity and population subgroup effects
The effect of physical activity on the risk of breast cancer is stronger in specific population subgroups and for certain parameters of activity that need to be further explored in future intervention trials. Expand
