Physical Activity (PA) and CLL ...large study
There was a decreased risk of hematologic malignancies associated with Physical Activity.
These associations were strongest for myeloid neoplasms for the highest tertile of all PA, for the highest tertile of moderate/high-intensity.
There were also significant associations between PA and chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma or other mature B-cell lymphomas except plasma cell disorders.
Conclusions Our study offers the strongest epidemiological evidence, to date, to suggest an association between regular PA and dose-dependent risk reduction for most hematologic malignancies, particularly myeloid neoplasms.
