Walking Often Can Suppress The Risk of Breast Cancer

Posted by Rifki Hakim Sunday, 6 October 2013

Walking is one of the simplest sports and free of charge. In addition, walking also has many benefits, such as reducing tension and eliminate stress.

Recently, researchers discovered other benefits of walking. Walk for an hour a day can slash the risk of breast cancer significantly. In a study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a team from the American Cancer Society says, this is the first time the reduction of risk of breast cancer specifically was associated with walking.

The research followed about 73,615 women in two stages. First, in the year 1992-1993 and the second between 1997-2009. Respondents were asked to fill out questionnaires about their health condition and how much time is used for walking, swimming, aerobics, watching television, till read.

Of approximately 73 615 respondents, 47 percent of whom say that walking is the only leisure of their activity. Researchers also found that women who walk at least seven hours each week had a 14 percent lower risk of developing breast cancer compared with those who walked three hours or less each week.

With this study, researchers recommend that women who are post-menopausal spare time by walking. While the Chief Executive of Breast Cancer Campaign, Baroness Delyth Morgan, said that the results of this study add to the evidence that a row of lifestyle play a major role in influencing the risk of breast cancer.

The challenge of today is how do we convert these findings into action and identify other sustainable lifestyle changes that will help us prevent breast cancer.
