Exercise and breast cancer

Healthy lifestyle habits are important for reducing a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer. One of these is regular physical activity, which can reduce the risk of breast cancer and prevent recurrence in women who have had breast cancer. You can read more about this in my Health & Fitness Column in the Aiken Standard this week.

You can learn more about breast cancer including statistics, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment from the National Cancer Institute here.

If you are interested in the research, this study demonstrates the effect of physical activity and maintaining a health body weight on reducing breast cancer risk.
