Exercise & breast cancer.- Women with children who exercise with regularity, around two hours a day, are up to 30% less likely to develop breast cancer. These are the conclusions reached by a study conducted on the benefits of exercise for the health by a team of researchers at the University of North Carolina in the United States.
The study emphasises that moderate exercise, like walk or keeping an active life, is enough to reduce the risk of suffering from breast cancer and that the practise of intense exercise does not make any difference.
The study analysed data collected from more than 1,550 health women aged between 20 and 98 years old.
The research revealed that women who practise exercise on a regular basis shown up to 6% less chances of developing breast cancer while if those women were also mothers, the risk decreases up to approximately 30%.
