Exercise and Breast Cancer Risk - more evidence comes in

Over the past few months there have been several articles about breast cancer risk reduction using exercise, reduction of breast cancer treatment side effects using exercise, and group workouts being of benefit to women in cancer treatment. We call theses "duh" studies because they are so obvious to the logical ind, but research has not proven it - so they really are valuable.

Another factor here is that women after breast cancer treatment used to be discouraged from exercising and lifting weight. We still recommend working with a trainer after surgery who is familiar with working with breast cancer survivors but GO FOR IT!!!

Here are some of the studies

here is another one

and one more

I could go on, but you get the point!!!
