Exercise may lower the risk of death among adult survivors of childhood cancer.

Researchers tracked over 15-thousand adults diagnosed with cancer before they were 21.

Patients who did regular vigorous exercise had a significantly lower risk of early death than those who did little or no exercise.

The study included 15,450 adult survivors of cancer diagnosed before age 21 between 1970 and 1999.
