Reviews

"! This volume is one of the only of its kind dedicated to helping healthcare providers establish a concrete plan allowing patients to control weight gain through exercise in order to forestall cancer. Expert researchers do an outstanding job delineating this material within a logical framework, looking at ways that physical activity impacts the incidence of cancer in the breast, prostate and colorectal regions ! it promotes a step away from drug-based therapies in favor of a more holistic approach to mitigating cancer risks. Bluntly, it's a message [to] those practicing medicine in the Western world should pay close and careful attention to. ! Recommended to all primary care physicians (in addition to dieticians and nurse practitioners) who serve as a patient's first-line of defense against disease. In addition, this volume is highly recommended to all Health Science libraries because of its well-detailed and erudite examination of the influence physical activity has on the processes of cancer." -- John Aiello, in The Electric Review "! is a collection of 35 chapters organized into 8 sections, each covering different aspects of the complex relationships among body weight, physical activity, cancer incidence, and cancer prognosis. ! Each chapter provides a short review and summary of research studies that have addressed a variety of methodological, epidemiological, experimental, and clinical issues related to the prevention and management of different cancers through physical activity and body-weight management. ! The organization of the chapters into section is logical, and each chapter includes a list of contents at the beginning. ! would be of value to any clinicians who works with patients who have cancer and those who have survived it. It would be an especially helpful resource to anyone who wants to learn more about the current state of knowledge in the relatively new linkage of cancer management, obesity, genetics, and physical activity." --Anthony E. Kincaid, Associate Professor, Department of Physical Therapy, Creighton University, Nebraska, in Physical Therapy, Vol. 87, No. 5, p. 615, May 2007 "! The present volume is not a rehash of some long-past symposium. Rather, it contains 35 invited contributions, each with 50-200 references. ! In all, this text provides a very thorough, evidence-based summary of current knowledge in a rapidly growing area of research, and it will be an important resource for those working on exercise, obesity and cancer." --Roy J. Shephard in Canadian Journal of Applied Physiology, June 2007 "The research presented in McTiernan's text is truly ground-breaking! Bluntly, it's a message those practicing medicine in the Western world should pay close and careful attention to! Recommended to all primary care physicians (in addition to dieticians and nurse practitioners) who serve as a patient's first-line of defense against disease. In addition, this volume is highly recommended to all Health Science libraries because of its well-detailed and erudite examination of the influence physical activity has on the processes of cancer." --The Electric Review
