Kathryn H. Schmitz, PhD, MPH, professor of Public Health Sciences and associate director of Population Sciences at the Penn State Cancer Institute, discusses what researchers already know regarding diet and exercise and breast cancer, and what questions are yet to be answered.

Right now, there is strong evidence behind exercise, diet, and weight control for conditions such as fatigue, lymphedema, and chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). Overall, Schmitz mentioned that decades worth of research shows that those who are fit withstand medical treatment much better.

However, the question of diet and exercise’s role in preventing breast cancer recurrence still remains. This is the focus of Schmitz’s ongoing study.
