Did You Know? Latest in Breast Cancer News


We all hear that we should exercise more because it's good for our health. But did you know that many women with breast cancer are missing out on this vital component for maximizing their health?

According to a new study that was featured in HealthDay News, women who are diagnosed with breast cancer are less likely to meet exercise recommendations that have linked physical activity with longer survival and better quality of life. 

U.S. guidelines call for adults getting at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise (think fast walking) or 75 minutes of rigorous exercise (think spin class or Zumba). But only 35 percent of the women treated for breast cancer in the study met those recommendations after diagnosis. 

When breaking the results down by race, African American women were 40 percent less likely than Caucasian women to meet the physical activity guidelines after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis.
