Exercise cuts breast cancer risk

Strong exercise may cut breast cancer risk Reuters/Yahoo!News 2/26/07 "While it is still not clear how hard or long women need to exercise, the study adds to a growing body of evidence that rigorous activity lowers breast cancer risk...exercise may reduce cancer risk through changes in metabolism and the immune system, and by reducing weight gain...Women who said they engaged in strenuous activity for more than five hours a week had a 20 percent lower risk of invasive breast cancer and a 31 percent lower risk of early stage breast cancer, compared to women who participated in less than 30 minutes of such activity every week...The study is the first to look at the cumulative effect of exercise over time"

One of the thousands of studies that show that exercise reduces the chance of getting many types of cancers and other various diseases like diabetes. If you aren't exercising almost everyday... start tomorrow (but go easy and don't do what my Dad did in the 70's when he decided he should start jogging - first run he sprinted and I mean sprinted away from our house and down the road and half a block away he pulled his Achilles tendon and came back limping in immense pain... and that was the end of the 70's jogging phase for my Dad.)
