Is there a connection between exercise and lipomas

There has been many people including myself who have noticed that new lipomas have formed or existing ones grew larger while exercising, and this may be due to the production of free radicals within our bodies.

Some high levels points on the topic:

- Increased exercise (weekend warrior) – without regular exercise to build our bodies natural antioxidant defences and without an effective nutrient diet with high antioxidants will result free radicals

- Free radicals occurs when oxygen in the body splits into single atoms with unpaired electrons. Electrons like to be in pairs, so these atoms, called free radicals, scavenge the body to seek out other electrons so they can become a pair. This causes damage to cells, proteins and DNA. Free radicals are associated with human disease.

- Free radicals can also occur with the food we eat, medicine we take, and water we drink.

I personally believe there is a strong connection with free radicals within my body which has overwhelmed my antioxidant system (because I am not consuming high antioxidant foods) and the formation of lipomas in my body.

It's interesting to see some actual evidence if exercising does indeed cause more lipomas. That being said, even if there is a connection, I think if we were to compare between "no exercise & slower lipoma growth" vs "exercise & faster lipoma growth", the latter has so much more health benefits that the slowdown in lipoma growth (if any) just isn't worth it.
That's why I'm not stopping the exercise, I'm doomed anyway, might as well look and feel better.
