Exercise to Reduce Your Risk of Breast Cancer

 You’ve seen all the pink ribbons, awareness for the cure for breast cancer is growing phenomenally.  But did you know there’s something simple you can do to reduce your risk of getting breast cancer?

 Breast cancer expert, Dr. Susan Love has the answer.  In study after study, exercise has been shown to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer as well as the risk of recurrence. Exercise hard enough to sweat for 30 minutes a day, three or four days a week. That’s it, especially if you are post-menopausal.  Any extra weight can increase your risk for cancer as well as a host of other diseases. The type of exercise doesn’t matter, just getting moving is the key.  Also avoid unnecessary radiation. Don’t have X-rays or CAT scans unless you need them and they make a difference in your treatment. Radiation is cumulative and increases breast cancer.
