Vigorous activity once, twice weekly may lower cardiac risk in stable coronary artery disease
Endurance exercise training may improve skeletal muscle microvasculature in patients with sickle cell disease

Endurance Exercise May Offer Vascular Benefit in Sickle Cell Disease

Increases in capillary density, functional exchange surface seen in microvasculature of skeletal muscle
At least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity physical activity is associated with lower all-cause mortality among postmenopausal breast cancer patients

Physical Activity After Cancer Diagnosis Improves Survival

Findings seen among postmenopausal breast cancer patients regardless of activity level prediagnosis
Older adults who increase their frequency of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity have a significantly lower risk for cardiovascular disease compared with those who are continuously physically inactive

Exercising More Often May Lower CVD Risk in Older Adults

Maintaining, increasing frequency of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity level may reduce CVD risk

Exercise Should Be Prescribed to Cancer Survivors

Key stakeholders are urged to create the infrastructure and necessary cultural adaptations
Higher cardiorespiratory fitness is associated with a lower risk for lung cancer incidence in former smokers and a reduced risk for cancer mortality in current smokers diagnosed with lung cancer

Cardiorespiratory Fitness May Improve Lung Cancer Outcomes

In fit men, mortality lower in smokers with lung cancer, lung cancer risk lower in former smokers
