Petra  Thaller, Thorsten  Schulz - Outdoors Against Cancer


Doing sports in nature is the
best medicine

Over 2000 studies worldwide have shown that exercise is as important for cancer treatment as drugs. Outdoor exercise in particular activates the immune system, regulates metabolism, and brings about a good mood and better body awareness.

Petra Thaller had this experience when she was confronted with the diagnosis of breast cancer. She is the founder of the Outdoor against Cancer initiative, and along with sports scientist Thorsten Schulz she explains what science knows about the effects of outdoor activities, which sports are possible, how to overcome lethargy, and why inner attitude is so important for recovery. Her motto: "The most important steps are the ones getting you out the front door."

• Preventing and treating cancer: what you can do

• Proven by 2000 studies: outdoor exercise stimulates the immune system, alleviates the fatigue syndrome, and improves mood

"This book illustrates how valuable it is to be physically active outside in the fresh air in confronting even such a diagnosis as cancer – a successful mix of emotion and information."
