Formatted Abstract/Summary
Cancer survivors may benefit from lifestyle interventions which can mitigate their increased risk of other health problems after a diagnosis of cancer including heart disease, diabetes and functional impairment. There is emerging evidence that weight management and physical activity will positively impact on key outcomes measures for cancer survivors; including quality of life, cancer recurrence and survival rates. Although dietary supplement use is very common among cancer survivors, there are very few studies documenting the effect nutritional supplements have on cancer recurrence and survival.
