Did you know that you can reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer and improve immunotherapy response by doing aerobic exercise?

Thirty minutes of exercise a day can reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer by as much as 50%. Aerobic exercise produces adrenaline (the fight-or-flight hormone). Adrenaline can boost the immune response by enhancing how the body handles signal proteins like Interleukin-15, which activates and increases the proliferation and survival of T-cells, B-cells, and NK (natural killer) cells. For this reason, adrenaline acts as one of the keys to unlocking a broader immune response to pancreatic cancer. Aerobic exercise also releases endorphins that reduce anxiety and depression.

It should be noted that generally, after a surgical procedure, it is recommended to start physical activity gradually under the advice of your health provider.
