Decreased Breast Cancer Risk with the Start of Activity in Postmenopausal Women

Yes, healthy habits are best started at a young age. After all, the earlier the better.

However, trying to benefit your body with new healthy habits once you’ve hit middle age or menopause, isn’t a lost cause. It may seem that once you’ve hit a certain mile marker in life there aren’t many preventative measures still available to take, but research proves otherwise.

According to data published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, researchers have narrowed down the time frame when postmenopausal women can take the most action that will leave them with the lowest risk for invasive breast cancer.

Beyond the good news of lowered breast cancer risk, postmenopausal women also don’t need to start running marathons to experience the benefits. Read more at Science Daily to get all of the details on how you can decrease your breast cancer risk by adopting just a couple of workout sessions a week.
