Jiang et al​(Jiang et al. 2020)​ from the Department of Cardiac Surgery, the First Hospital of Jilin University reported their latest finding on the influence of Taichi training for lung cancer patients. Lung cancer patients after surgery were randomly allocated into Taichi training or routine nurse care as control. After a 3-month training, Taichi improved the patients’ antioxidant and anti-inflammatory abilities possibly by affecting KEAP1-NRF2 signalling, and increasing blood oxygen level.
