Health News : Five Studies Link Activity/Exercise To Lower Breast Cancer Risk

1. Regular physical activity reduces breast cancer risk irrespective of age

ScienceDaily reports : Practising sport for more than an hour day reduces the risk of contracting breast cancer, and this applies to women of any age and any weight, and also unaffected by geographical location. Compared with the least active women, those with the highest level of physical activity reduced their risk of breast cancer by 12%, researchers say.

2. Study links moderate activity to lower breast cancer risk

ScienceDaily reports : A large new American Cancer Society study adds to increasing evidence that physical activity reduces the risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women. Among the women who reported walking as their only activity, those who walked at least 7 hours per week had a 14% lower risk of breast cancer compared to those who walked 3 or fewer hours per week. The women walked at a "moderate" pace -- about 3 miles per hour. The most active women -- those who walked and did more vigorous exercise -- had a 25% lower risk of breast cancer compared to the least active.

3. Exercise, even mild physical activity, may reduce breast cancer risk

ScienceDaily reports : A new analysis has found that physical activity – either mild or intense and before or after menopause – may reduce breast cancer risk, but substantial weight gain may negate these benefits. The findings indicate that women can reduce their breast cancer risk by exercising and maintaining their weight.

UKRawHealth Comments
A natural way to reduce breast cancer risk sounds great and exercise couldn't be more natural for human beings. If you are not exercising at all, start walking every day a few minutes and build up to half an hour over time. Or if you like variety try to do different things each week in between days of walking. Don't be too hard on yourself, if you can't do too much on one day do as much as you can and then try again the next day. Everything you do towards more exercise counts. If you are exercising regularly then keep it up. If you sit down for most of the day as part of your job or lifestyle, get up and stretch and walk about for a few minutes every hour. Try not to stay still for too long. Remember to check with your doctor before starting any exercise.
