Exercise VS. Breast Cancer

6 Hours Exercise/Week = 27% Lower Risk, in One Study

A new study, published in Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers & Prevention, found that among 16,000 women in all stages of life, those who engaged in vigorous physical activity most days of the week significantly lowered their risk of invasive breast cancer.While these results applied only to women without a family history of the disease, numerous other studies have inventoried the breast health benefits of exercise, both in terms of prevention and survival.

Regular workouts help women maintain a healthy weight — a key factor in fighting breast cancer.Not only do dietary choices affect weight management — certain nutrients may also afford particular protection.For example, increasing fiber (e.g., beans, raspberries, pears and artichokes) could significantly reduce your breast cancer risk.Other foods rich in potential anti-cancer compounds include pineapple,cauliflower, garlic, cabbage, apples, broccoli, cranberries, tomatoes and Brussels sprouts.Conversely, consumption of alcohol and fast food might increase breast cancer risk.
