Findings suggest even reducing one's mile time by half a minute can contribute to lower risk of death from the disease
Not so long ago, not only was the patient not informed (s)he had cancer (the family was called aside) but the news of the disease was also received as a death sentence. Not today, where many types of cancer have become chronic health conditions rather than critical ones.
