EXERCISE DIRECTLY LINKED TO REDUCING THE CHANCES OF BREAST CANCER
A recent released Canadian study has discovered a link between reducing the chance of Breast Cancer with exercise! The study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology by York University Professor Michael Connor found that different hormones produced in fat cells in obese individuals can lead to breast cancer cell growth, however with daily exercise the effects of these fat cells can be fought against and help to prevent cancer growth.
“Our study shows that voluntary and rigorous exercise can counteract, and even completely prevent the effects on cancer growth that are caused by obesity. We also show that even moderate exercise can lead to slowing of breast cancer growth and that the more exercise you do, the greater the benefit.” said Connor.
For many years’ doctors have been telling us to eat right and to exercise daily to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, and this new study just drives that point home even more. The more we can do to save lives and prevent cancer all begins with ourselves, we have the power to prevent and help other battle this disease with hard work, determination, and a little sweat!
“Our research has found that the characteristics of hormones produced by fat cells in obese people can promote breast cancer growth, whereas in lean people it prevents growth,” – Connor
