Physical activity and breast cancer prevention

physical activity


Breast cancer is now one of the most common cancers worldwide and research evidence on the impact of physical activity and exercise on breast cancer is clear: regular exercise can reduce our risk of breast cancer – particularly post-menopausal breast cancer – by 20% to 80%.

Movement is medicine 

My friend Darryl Edwards, author, public speaker, creator of the Primal Play Method anda huge advocate for ‘movement-is-medicine‘ is an Ambassador for Breast Cancer UK – a charity dedicated to breast cancer prevention and risk reduction. Darryl has produced a presentation on the role of physical activity and exercise in breast cancer prevention and I’m pleased to share it with you here…

Movement is a key element in our well-being. We were born to move – moving our body is absolutely fundamental to restoring, building and maintaining our health.

So let’s heed Darryl’s advice and take on board Breast Cancer UK’s motto: ‘prevent the preventable”. Prevention is always, always better than cure.
