Exercise Can Help Lower Your Chances Of Getting Breast Cancer!

July 21, 2015 1 min read

Being overweight can lead to many health problems, including heart disease, a weak immune system, and some cancers. Christine Friedenreich is a leader in studying cancer epidemiology and prevention research at Alberta Health Services and has done a lot of research in steps we can take to help prevent cancer. Friedenreich and her colleagues did a study and found that a higher body fat put women at greater risk of getting breast cancer. They found that women who worked out for an average of 225 minutes a week show a drop in overall body fat, reducing their risk of getting breast cancer. Friedenreich did another study to see if there was a difference in the amount of time spent working out. She took 384 non-active women, past menopause with a wide range of body types and body fat percentages. Half were assigned to do 150 minutes of physical activity a week, while the rest did 300 minutes. She found that those who did twice the amount of exercise a week lost 1% more body fat than those doing 150 minutes. While, it may seem like a small number, every little bit makes a difference! Going to the gym or doing any physical activity for only 5 hours (300 minutes) a week will substantially reduce your risk of breast cancer among so many other diseases! So, get active ladies! Keeping active not only makes you feel good, but reduces your risk of breast cancer among some many other health risks! Do you follow us on Instagram?
