|News published in Agência FAPESP Newsletter about the researcher|
|Over 50% of adults in Brazil can be considered at risk for COVID-19|
|Physical activity in adolescence and later life reduces the risk of colorectal adenoma by 39%|
|Healthy habits could avoid 27% of cancer cases in Brazil|
The objectives of this post-doctoral project are (1) to estimate the effect of different types, intensities and periods of life of physical activity on the risk of cancer; (2) to evaluate the costs of the Brazilian public health system with the treatment of cancers that could potentially be saved by increasing physical activity. For the first objective of the project, we will use data f...
Purpose: To investigate the current evidence on the association between physical inactivity and cancer incidence/mortality (Study 1) and the impact of this relationship on public health in Brazil (Studies 2 and 3). Methods: Study 1: we will performe a review (overview) of systematic reviews through a search on 5 databases with descriptors related to exposure ("physical inactivity") and ...
