Physical activity and breast cancer prevention
THE ROLE OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND EXERCISE IN BREAST CANCER PREVENTION
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…
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.
