An interesting study for sure and I do not doubt the results. A life style of vigorous exercise has shown over the years to reduced all sorts of health related problems as well as improve your mental state. One of the common pieces of advice from veteran posters to newcomers on HT is to exercise regularly.
I have been lucky for most of my adult life, to have had a very active life. I still eat too many foods rich in fat and sugar and drink more than my share of alcohol, but my wife of 39 years and I have always made an active lifestyle a priority even with family and work commitments and I often wonder if being this active has helped me cope with the quick recovery from PC surgery 5 years ago and the minimal side effects of the ADT and RT that are ongoing at this time.
Hopefully, with a strong, active and healthy body, we can dictate the terms of how this cancer acts in the future rather than just relying only on medications and procedures.
