The study that expresses these statistics were performed by the Blanchard team, and written up in the May 1, 2008 issue of The Journal of Clinical Oncology.
The title of the article is “Cancer Survivors’ Adherence to Lifestyle Behavior Recommendations and Associations With Health-Related Quality of Life: Results From the American Cancer Society's SCS-II.”
The researchers conclude in their paper: “Few cancer survivors are meeting the PA or 5-A-Day recommendations, and even fewer are meeting all three lifestyle recommendations."
They add, "The association between the current lifestyle recommendations and HRQoL in cancer survivors appears to be cumulative. Interventions to increase PA and fruit and vegetable consumption and reduce smoking are warranted and may have additive effects on the HRQoL of cancer survivors.”
Along with Blanchard, the other authors are Kerry S. Courneya and Keven Stein.
The three researchers represent one of these three organizations: Faculty of Medicine, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia; Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; and the Department of Quality of Life Research, Behavioral Research Center, American Cancer Society, Atlanta, Georgia, United States.
